Jules Davids taught at U.S. diplomatic history at Georgetown from 1946 until his retirement in 1986. He worked on the late President John F. Kennedy’s Pulitzer Prize winning book, 'Profiles in Courage,' and was well-known for his books on world affairs, including 'America and the World of our Time: U.S. Diplomacy in the 20th Century,' 1960. In 1979, he received an award for teaching from the School of Foreign Service and he received the Centennial Award for University service in 1982. Foreign Service School Dean Peter F. Krogh said of Davids in his 1986 Dean’s Report that he [Davids] 'established himself as the class-teacher scholar in the finest tradition of faculty whose continuing inspiration and reward are their students. Jules Davids was the unpretentious, caring, accessible mentor to generations of students. They properly remember him as exemplifying the very meaning of the word ‘mentor.' ”
