I was a student of Dr. Stoessinger's at Hunter College, Park Ave. campus. He was an amazing
professor, who inspired me to minor in Political Science, His lectures were so down to earth and riveting. He was the ultimate professor! I have the deepest sympathy for his family.
(My years at Hunter 1955-1959)

Dr. Stoessinger was my Political Science Professor at Hunter College in the Bronx in 1964. He inspired me to major in Political Science and he never was the image of a stuffy Professor but rather a distinguished, well dressed man of the world with incredible insight into the world and its inhabitants.
I was saddened to hear of his passing but revel in his contributions to the world in general. May his family and close friends continue to be comforted in that, and the fact that one of his students from 1964 remembers him with such admiration.

John was an amazing author, speaker, friend. I have used his book, Crusaders and Pragmatists, to teach generations of AP U.S. History students for 35 years. It's the one book my students often take to college. My school, Thomas Jefferson School in St. Louis, MO, was fortunate enough to have him as the guest speaker at our school's 60th anniversary. He lived an amazing life! I will miss our phone conversations.
