Jon C. Teaford is professor emeritus in the History Department at Purdue University.[1] He specializes in American urban history and early on in his career he specialized in legal history.

Teaford became interested in history at a young age, stemming from his fascination with president Theodore Roosevelt.[2] He received his PhD from the University of Wisconsin in 1973; his dissertation, The Municipal Revolution in America: Origins of Modern Urban Government, 1650–1825, was also published as a book in 1975.[3] He retired in 2003.[2] In 2011–2012 he served as president of the Urban History Association.[4]
