Dr. Andrew P. Haley is an associate professor of American cultural history at the University of Southern Mississippi and author of Turning the Tables: Restaurants and the Rise of the American Middle Class, 1880-1920.

Along with teaching courses on Gilded Age and Progressive Era, I study the history of class and culture from the late nineteenth century through the middle of the twentieth century. I am the author of a book on restaurant culture and the middle class at the turn of the century, and I am currently working on two additional manuscripts. This site features information on my teaching and research.
