Support the American Studies Program

larry fuchs

The Larry Fuchs Fund was created in 2013 to celebrate the many accomplishments of the late founder and longtime chair of the American Studies Program at Brandeis University, Lawrence Fuchs, H'02.

Fuchs, who held the title of Meyer and Walter Jaffe Professor of American Civilization and Politics, was a popular teacher — his courses were frequently oversubscribed — and a renowned scholar. He was the author of 10 books during his illustrious 50-year career; his seminal work, "The American Kaleidoscope: Race, Ethnicity and the Civic Culture," was published in 1991. Fuchs died March 17, 2013, at the age of 86.
