    Biography "His interest in history began when he was growing up in Newburgh,Ind., a small town on the Mason-Dixon Line. An elderly neighbor regaled the young man with stories of watching Confederate raiders cross the Ohio River. He graduated from Swarthmore College in 1949 with a double major in English and history. He earned a doctorate in history from Oxford, which he attended on a Rhodes Scholarship. He is a distant cousin of the founder of Brentanos's publishing, which later became Brentano's books. But, his family says, he never identified as such nor worked in the family business. Once he arrived at Berkeley -- the first university tha offered him a job, his wife said -- he was take by the diversity of the campus and was determined to fight for even greater access for all students. He was active in strengthening outreach programs for disadvantaged students. Although he was offered prestigious teaching jobs elsewhere, he remained at Berkley. "Everything he did, he did with enthusiasm", his son James Brentano said. "And, he really liked people and tried to understand them. This was true of his students, of his family, of his colleagues." His son added, "He was also a nice, regular guy. A good guy. He liked football and enjoyed watching Sunday night movies. He was a lifelong Democrat."" (Julian Guthrie) 
    Biography "Robert Brentano, a brilliant history professor whose 50 years of teaching and leadership on the Berkeley campus drew profound admiration and respect from students and professional colleagues alike, was born May 19, 1926, in Evansville, Indiana. A scholar in medieval English and Italian history, Brentano received his bachelor’s degree from Swarthmore College and his doctorate from Oxford University, which he attended as a Rhodes Scholar. He joined Berkeley’s history department in 1952 and never left.
    During his half-century on campus he wrote six books and numerous articles on medieval history, while regularly teaching introductory history courses and specialized upper-division courses in British history. He also served on a broad variety of university committees and boards, including a stint in 1999 as chair of the Berkeley Academic Senate, the faculty governing board.
    Brentano received several awards for his teaching and scholarship. In 1986, the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education named him California Professor of the Year. In 1991, the campus’s Academic Senate awarded him its top prize, the Clark Kerr Award for Distinguished Leadership in Higher Education. Last spring he was honored by the International Congress of Medieval Studies. He died on Nov. 21, 2002.
    Brentano was survived by his wife of 46 years, Carroll; his sons James, of Orinda, and Robert, of Ross; daughter Margaret of South Berwick, Maine; and five grandchildren." (Janet Gilmore)
