|Personal Fact of Robert Fogel|
Robert Fogel was an American economic historian and scientist who won a share of the 1993 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences along with Douglass North. Best remembered for his advocacy of the use of quantitative methods in history, he was also known for his controversial views about the economics of slavery. A bold and confident man, he was an independent thinker who never shied away from expressing his beliefs irrespective of the consequences.
His range of research was extraordinarily wide and he was called the original interdisciplinary scholar by Robert A. Margo, professor of economics at Boston University. The son of Ukrainian Jewish immigrants to the US, he was intellectually curious from a young age and initially aspired for a career in science. However, an increasing interest in economics led him to Cornell University, where he majored in history with an economics minor. He proceeded to obtain an MA in economics from Columbia University and completed his PhD from Johns Hopkins University.
He eventually embarked on an academic career and performed extensive research on understanding the factors that contribute to economic growth. Though primarily an economic historian, he also performed significant research on varied topics such as demographics, physiology, sociology of the family, nutrition, and other fields.
