Fred Greenbaum, Ph.D., Historian, Educator and Politician at Queensborough Community College, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in history education and politics.
Dr. Greenbaum delved into his profession of choice by an early age, having always loved reading about history. Few people coming out of high school know what they want to do for a living; however, Dr. Greenbaum did, and he pursued his field with a passion. He attended Brooklyn College, earning a Bachelor of Arts in 1952, and subsequently received a Master of Arts from the University of Wisconsin in 1953. After gaining experience in the field, he received a Doctor of Philosophy from Columbia University in 1962. Commencing his career as a lecturer at Brooklyn College between 1957 and 1960, he subsequently transitioned to Queens College in Flushing, NY, acting as a lecturer from 1960 to 1961.
Upon earning his doctorate, Dr. Greenbaum was hired by Queensborough Community College, where he served as an assistant professor, associate professor, and full professor of history between 1962 and 2000, when he ultimately reached emeritus status. Equally interested in politics, he served as the professional staff Congress chapter chair of the college from 1975 to 2001, a member of the executive committee of the faculty senate at the City University of New York from 1975 to 2000, and a delegate of the professional staff Congress for the American Federation of Teachers from 1975 to 2000. Likewise, he was a candidate for the New York State Senate in the Nassau County Democratic Party in 1984 and 1986, having also served as a county committeeman for the Democratic party in Garden City, NY, from 1970 to 1990.
Deeply involved in the political process, especially democratic ideologies, Dr. Greenbaum has been the author of four books, most recently including “Progressives in America” in 2005 and “Men Against Myths: The Progressive Response” in 2000. He considers the publication of these books to be the highlights of his career. Married to Ann T. Corsini since 1954, Dr. Greenbaum is the proud father of two children and enjoys attending the theater, ballet, opera, museums and concerts in his spare time.
