Professor Stephen Hansen received his PhD in American history from the University of Illinois at Chicago. His general area of interest is 19th-century U.S. political history and he specializes in the Civil War and Reconstruction. His book, The Making of the Third Party System: Voters and Parties in Illinois, 1850 to 1876 (Ann Arbor, 1980) examines the formation and evolution of the Republican Party voter coalition in Illinois. In addition to his other publications, he was the compiler for an historical atlas, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, v 2, Historical Atlas and Chronology of County Boundaries, 1788-1980 (Boston, 1984).
