When Dr. Carl Pegels retired as a management professor, he turned his research to prominent Dutch-Americans.  His profiles now number around 300. The New Netherland Institute is grateful to Professor Pegels for providing these biographies. In appreciation, NNI awarded him the Alice P. Kenney Memorial Award in 2009.

Get Dr. Pegels' books: Prominent Dutch-American Entrepreneurs (paperback); Dutch-American Achievers: Arts, Sciences and Sports (for Kindle); Dutch-American Achievers: Government, Military, History and Phlisophy (for Kindle).

Please refer questions and comments to Professor Pegels directly.

This alphabetical index uses the Dutch approach. Names with van are sorted by the name following the van rather than grouping the "vans" together.
