Agran is a cultural historian and Professor Emeritus at Wilmington College. His teaching and publications focus on the first decades of the 20th century. His studies of journalist William Allen White, novelist Sinclair Lewis, and Herbert Hoover examine the American Promise, middle-class values, and the power of words.
