Biographical / Historical

Jerome Bernstein was born on November 22, 1928 in Brooklyn, New York. He served in the United State Army from 1951-1952 in Europe with the 172nd Regimental Combat Team as a squad leader and a company non-commissioned officer. Bernstein married Barbra Parsons, and the couple had three children together. Bernstein received his Bachelor’s degree in history from Utah State University in 1957. He received his Master’s Degree from Utah State University in 1961, with his thesis on “A History of the Constitutional Convention of the Territory of Utah, 1849-1895.” Bernstein started as an Assistant Professor of History at Weber State College in 1966. Although he was nominated for an associate position several times, Bernstein never received a promotion because he never did not finish his course work for a doctorate from Washington University. Bernstein taught American civilization and U.S. diplomatic history. He was the History department’s liaison for the Library. Bernstein founded the Weber Historical Studies in 1988, a historical student journal, and was the professor of the year in 1974. Bernstein retired from teaching in 1989, having taught at Weber for 23 years. Bernstein passed away on January 17, 1990 from Lou Gehrig’s disease.
