Michael L. Kurtz (born 1941 in New Orleans, Louisiana) is an American historian. A Southeastern Louisiana University professor emeritus of history, he is known for his research into the assassination of John F. Kennedy, in which Kurtz has generally supported a theory that Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone.
Kurtz has published on other topics of American history, notably the career of Louisiana Governor Earl Kemp Long, co-authored with the late professor Morgan D. Peoples of Louisiana Tech University.
Kurtz received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of New Orleans, a Master of Arts from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, and a Ph.D. from Tulane University in New Orleans. He is married to the former Isabella Stoddard. The couple has a son, Michael David Kurtz, an attorney, and a daughter, Linda Suzanne Kurtz, a degree-holding registered nurse.
