Linda Gordon is the Florence Kelley Professor of History and University Professor of the Humanities at New York University and the recipient of the 2017 OAH Roy Rosenzweig Distinguished Service Award. She is author of dozens of scholarly articles and of multiple books including: The Moral Property of Women: A History of Birth Control Politics in America (2002); The Second Coming of the KKK: The Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s and the American Political Tradition (2017), Pitied But Not Entitled: Single Mothers and the History of Welfare (1994), winner of the Berkshire Conference of Women Historians Book Prize; The Great Arizona Orphan Abduction (1999), winner of the Bancroft Prize; and Dorothea Lange: A Life Beyond Limits (2009), which also won the Bancroft Prize, making Gordon one of three people ever to win this prize twice. She also discovered Dorothea Lange's photographs of the Japanese-American internment during World War II—photographs which had been suppressed by the U.S. Army because they were so critical—and published them for the first time in Impounded: Dorothea Lange and the Censored Images of Japanese American Internment (2006). Gordon's most recent book is also a biography, Inge Morath: An Illustrated Biography (2018). Her book on the history of social movements in the US is forthcoming from W.W. Norton in 2024.
