Stanley Schultz (1938-2020)

Stanley Schultz headshotStanley Kenton “Stan” Schultz, age 82, passed away at his home in Middleton, Wis., on Dec. 8, 2020. Stan was born on July 12, 1938, in Los Angeles, Calif., to Kenton Schultz and Virginia Pyle Schultz. He always considered Los Angeles his home. Everywhere else he lived, no matter how long, he was “just passing through.”

Stan was a popular professor of history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, earning him a Distinguished Teaching Award. While he authored several books and won numerous prizes, teaching was his great love. He was an innovator as well. In collaboration with William Tishler, Stan was among the first to have a history video course broadcast on local and state television. Later, he was again among the first to offer an online history course.
