Dr. Gary Kroll

Associate Professor of History — Environmental History and History of Exploration

Dr. Kroll teaches an array of courses in environmental history, but his primary interest is the history of exploration. He is the co-creator and instructor in the foundation course, "The History and Culture of Expeditions," for our expeditionary studies program. As an environmental historian and a historian of science, Dr. Kroll brings an important perspective to the expeditionary studies curriculum. In a past life, and one he still dreams of, Dr. Kroll spent hours blowing glass. Read Gary Kroll’s complete faculty profile.
