In 2015, the New York Times described Lloyd Ultan as an institution in regards to his longstanding dedication to preserving and bolstering the history of the Bronx borough of New York. As Mr. Ultan put it, the more he learned about the world through his undergraduate and graduate studies at Hunter College and Columbia University, respectively, the more he realized he did not know about his hometown.

Mr. Ultan joined the faculty of FDU in 1964 and remains an integral history educator at the institution to this day as a full professor. He has also taught at Lehman College and Hunter College, both institutions are part of the City University of New York.
Mr. Ultan has published more than 10 books on the Bronx, including “The Beautiful Bronx (1920-1950),” “The Bronx in the Innocent Years: 1890-1925” and “The Northern Borough: A History of the Bronx.” In 2009, he was recognized with the 45-Year Award from Fairleigh Dickinson University. He has also received accolades such as the New York City Book Award for Borough History from the New York Society Library and was named the New York City Centennial Historian in 1999. In his career, Mr. Ultan maintained professional affiliation with the American Association of University Professors, the New York Historical Society, the American Historical Association, Sigma Lambda, Alpha Chi Alpha and Phi Alpha Theta.
