Brian Abel Ragen, Emeritus Professor at Bryn Mawr College, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in English.
Dr. Ragen became involved in his profession because he had a love for literature. Another reason he chose his field was for his aunt, who became his guardian, she was a professor of history at San Diego State University and was his inspiration. He began on his path to his field by receiving a BA from Pomona College in 1980. Dr. Ragen followed that up by earning a MA and a PhD from Princeton University in 1983 and 1987 respectively. After graduating, he remained at Princeton University as a lecturer from 1984 to 1988. During that time, he also lectured at Bryn Mawr College from 1986 to 1987.
The highlight of Dr. Ragen’s career was becoming the editor of scholarly journal papers on language and literature from 1992-2008. He is also proud that he was able to establish scholarships and fellowships at Pomona College, Princeton University, Fontbonne University and William Penn University in Oculus, Iowa. Dr. Ragen became an associate professor at Southern Illinois University from 1988 to 1993, before returning to Bryn Mawr College in 1993, as an associate professor. He moved up in the system to professor in 2000 and eventually to emeritus professor in 2013, a position he still holds to this day. As a testament to Dr. Ragen’s success, he has been inducted as a member of various esteemed organizations such as the Modern Language Association, the American Recorder Society and the Order of St. John, among other associations. Furthermore, Mr. Raegan has been included in the 23rd edition of Who’s Who in the Midwest.
