Memorial to Honor Professor Emerita Ruth Prigozy

The English Department invites the Hofstra community to a memorial to celebrate the life and academic career of Professor Emerita Ruth Prigozy. During her 41 years at Hofstra, Dr. Prigozy became one of the world’s leading experts on the life and work of F. Scott Fitzgerald and a scholar of popular literature and film. She directed or co-directed seven major Hofstra Cultural Center conferences (a record among the Hofstra faculty) on topics as diverse as Alfred Hitchcock, Agatha Christie, John Steinbeck, and Bing Crosby; and won the University’s Teacher of the Year Award.  Her publications include The Life of Dick Haymes: No More Little White Lies (2006), Cambridge Companion to F. Scott Fitzgerald (2001), which she edited; and the biography F. Scott Fitzgerald (2004). 


Dr. Prigozy served for many years as an officer in Hofstra’s AAUP chapter. In recognition of her impact on the University, she was named to the Hofstra Honor Roll in 2010.


Please join us in celebrating Professor Emerita Ruth Prigozy. For more information, call the English Department at 516-463-5454.
