Homepage for William L. Patch,

Professor Patch enjoys the sun of Tuscany in March 2000
Welcome to my homepage. I received my B.A. in history from the University of California at Berkeley in 1975 and my Ph.D. in modern European history from Yale in 1981. I studied in Germany for my junior year at the University of Göttingen and later a year of dissertation research based at the University of Bochum. After teaching at Yale for three years and Grinnell College in Iowa for twenty, I arrived at Washington and Lee in 2006. My scholarly specialties are the history of Germany in the 20th century, the history of church-state relations and of Christian social movements, and the history of international relations. I have published two monographs and several articles on German history and am now writing a book on the role of blue-collar workers in the Christian Democratic Union under Konrad Adenauer. My office is in Newcomb 219.
