Short biography
Gregor Dallas, a British citizen, knows something about frontiers and cultural differences. He has spent one third of his life in Britain, a third in the United States and a third in France. He attended Sherborne School in Dorset, received an AB (economics and history) at the University of California at Berkeley, and an AM and PhD (European Economic History) at Rutgers University, New Jersey, where he taught. He also taught at Smith College, Massachusetts (one of America’s ’Seven Sisters’). He is an acclaimed historian of the ending of wars. He writes about both the famous and the unknown, and likes to put historical events in their physical place. In 2006 he set up a French section of the Society of Authors (SOAF) and, pursuing his lifelong interest in local history, organized the following year a ’Local History Workshop’ in the French royal town of Dreux; it created quite a stir in the regional press - this Englishman teaching the French their history. In 2008-9 he chaired the Constitution Study Group of the British Conservatives in Paris (BCiP), which became the object of a book (The Inglorious Revolution).
Dallas in 2014 completed an historical novel, Satie and the Painter, a story of art, love and bitter disillusionment set at the height of the Belle Epoque.
