Stephen Alan Schuker (born 1939) is an American historian who is currently William W. Corcoran Professor of History at the University of Virginia.[1]

He was educated at Cornell University, where he gained a BA in 1959.[1] In 1958 Cornell awarded him a $500 prize for being their outstanding history student.[2] He was awarded an MA and a PhD by Harvard University in 1962 and 1969, respectively.[1] According to Walter A. McDougall, Schuker's book The End of French Predominance in Europe is the definitive work on the circumstances leading to the adoption of the 1924 Dawes Plan on German reparations.[3] The book was awarded the Gilbert Chinard Prize (in 1976) and the George Louis Beer Prize (in 1977).[4]
