Michael Salevouris

History professor Michael J. Salevouris started teaching at Webster University in 1970. That‘s also the year that his dedication to his students, his depth of knowledge, his engrossing lectures, and his sense of humor started to become the stuff of legend.

Salevouris, who retired earlier this year from the Department of History, Politics, & International Relations and continues teaching part time, is being honored for his devotion to his profession and his students with an endowed scholarship.

The Michael J. Salevouris Endowed Scholarship Fund for History came into being through the efforts of Allen Carl Larson, former director of the Webster University Symphony Orchestra; Debra Mack Larson; and friends and family of Salevouris.

“Dr. Salevouris’ 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,” said Larson. “Through his publications and reputation in historical methodology, Michael also earned wide recognition and respect in his field. His legacy at Webster will be celebrated and reinforced with this endowed scholarship bearing his name.”
