MSU Home :: Exelbirt, Wilhelm
He joined the faculty as a history professor in 1948 and retired from full-time teaching in 1971. The Austrian-born political refugee was a renowned expert in Slavic European history. He was the first to receive the University’s Distinguished Faculty Award in 1964 and was the 1990 Founders Day Award for University Service recipient. A seminar room in Rader Hall was named in his honor and a distinguished lectureship was established through the MSU Foundation. One student said: “While I have known those considered geniuses in one or two fields, I have never known anyone who knows as much about practically everything.”
