About

Michael J. Salevouris, Professor Emeritus of History, was an exemplary figure of academic excellence and dedication to his students for over forty years. Mike grew up in Denver, Colorado, and received his BA from Colorado College, and MA and PhD in history from the University of Minnesota. Well known for his depth of knowledge, engaging lectures, and wry sense of humor, his students remember their days at Webster with great fondness due to his caring and exacting approach to their education and his concern for and interest in them as people. Eschewing the easy approach to pedagogical assessment, Dr. Salevouris frequently assigned papers of significant depth and dutifully graded each and every one with great care. Through his publications and reputation in historical methodology, Mike also earned wide recognition and respect in his field. Mike was never happier than when teaching and is fondly remembered by the many students and colleagues whose lives he touched. He will be deeply missed by many.

“Mike was simply the most extraordinary teacher and humanist that I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. Mike's teaching and scholarly career stretched over more than four decades at Webster. As far as I'm concerned, he was the soul of our Department, the stand-setter for high standards of teaching. All of us, and all of you who knew Mike, extend our most sincere condolences to his wife, Peggy Brockmann, and the rest of the Brockmann-Salevouris family.” – Daniel Hellinger, Professor Emeritus of History

Please consider a gift to the Michael J. Salevouris Endowed Scholarship Fund for History to further Mike’s legacy and ensure the support of students who display scholarly seriousness in historical inquiry.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, June 8, 2024 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Lupton Chapel, 7233 Delmar Boulevard, University City.
