J. B. Black

John Bennett Black (1883-1964) was a Scottish historian whose primary topic of study was of Elizabethan England. He was Professor of History at the University of Aberdeen where a prize is awarded each year in his name. He wrote "The Reign of Elizabeth" the second volume of the Oxford History of England series to appear. His 1926 work The Art of History, though now superseded, was the first important scholarly consideration of Enlightenment historiography of the twentieth century.
