Portrait of Andrew Knauf

Andrew “Bud” Knauf received his B.A. at St. Bonaventure, his M.A. at the University of Maine (Orono), and his Ph.D. at the University of Detroit.

His master’s thesis, on Robert Frost’s late poetry, is based on the extraordinary late life experiences of the poet dealing with madness and suicide in his family. Knauf's doctoral dissertation, on the prevalence and influence of alcohol in Ernest Hemingway’s long fiction, again constitutes a biographical study of the author’s work, here seen through his reliance on what he referred to as the psychic “pain killer.”

During his many years at Norwich, Prof. Knauf has taught at all levels, from first-year English to single author seminars, and has maintained an active engagement in department and university administration. He has written on native American literature and on his authors of principal interest, Frost and Hemingway. He maintains active engagement in the university’s Colby Military Writers Symposium and its Rhodes Scholarship competition.  

For recreation and renewal, Prof. Knauf travels and fly fishes northeastern rivers for salmon and trout.
