Ellen Fitzpatrick

Ellen Fitzpatrick is a scholar of modern American intellectual and political history and a professor of history at the University of New Hampshire. Her work includes Letters to Jackie: Condolences from a Grieving Nation, a New York Times bestseller that was adapted into a documentary film by Bill Coutrurie; History’s Memory: Writing America’s Past 1880-1980; and Endless Crusade: Women Social Scientists and Progressive Reform. She has contributed her expertise on political history by publications and news outlets including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, USA Today, the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, CBS’s Face the Nation, NPR, and PBS NewsHour. In The Highest Glass Ceiling: Women’s Quest for the American Presidency, Fitzpatrick traces the history of women’s thwarted presidential ambitions in a work that Harvard University’s Theda Skocpol calls a “triumph, and an inspiration.”
