Stanley Weintraub, Emeritus Evan Pugh Professor of Arts and Humanities of the University of Pennsylvania, is an expert on Shaw, and an award-winning historian and biographer. His more than fifty publications include many definitive studies of Shaw such as an edition of the early shorthand diaries, Journey to Heartbreak, Who’s Afraid of Bernard Shaw, and Shaw’s People. Biographies include Whistler, Aubrey Beardsley, Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, and Disraeli. He has also published extensively on military history, World War I, and the Korean War.
