William Tramposch

All Tour Lecturers

Bill Tramposch graduated (Phi Beta Kappa) from Cal with a degree in English and American literature and went on to receive a Doctorate in the History of Higher Education from the College of William and Mary. He is also a graduate of Oxford’s ‘Senior Managers’ Development Program’ and was also appointed a Visiting Fellow of Kellogg College, Oxford. As Lecturer for our Oxford-Berkeley Program he combines his interest in higher education and heritage, an interest that has drawn him to Oxford many times during his fifty-year career, and most recently to explore the fields of continuing education and lifelong learning.

As a Lecturer in our international tours, he has a particular interest in the Alps. He has attended the Goethe Institute in Murnau, Germany and has often trekked in Austria and Switzerland. His abiding interest has been in what the human and built environment reveals about history and national identity. During his fifty-year career he has served as Vice-Chair of the International Council of Museums; a Director at The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, a founding director of The National Museum of New Zealand and as CEO of New Zealand Historic Places Trust. Most recently he has been Senior Fellow in Creative Aging for the American Alliance of Museums.
