Ari Arthur Hoogenboom (born 1927) is professor emeritus of history at Brooklyn College at the City University of New York. He is a scholar of the Gilded Age, particularly in the life and Presidency of Rutherford B. Hayes.[1]

Hoogenboom grew up in the Queens borough of New York City, and graduated from Atlantic Union College, where he met and married his wife Olive, with whom he would go on to co-author several books.[2] He went to graduate school at Columbia University, where he was a student of David Herbert Donald.[3] Hoogenboom was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1965.[4]

Hoogenboom described his teaching style in Brooklyn College's history department as follows:

"Oh, I teach courses in the Gilded Age and political parties, but most of my work is really with freshmen college students and teaching a course that we call Core 4 or the Shaping of the Modern World, which really is the history of the Atlantic world; at least the way I teach it, it comes out as the history of the Atlantic world, Europe and America, primarily. And the interplay between the United States and Europe or the point counterpoint between American history and European history, influenced by Europe; in turn, we influence Europe, back and forth."[5]
