Dr. Rueber graduated from Mississippi State University in 2010. After serving as a post-doc at Auburn University, he joined the faculty at MVSU in 2012. Dr. Rueber’s primary focus is on the history of the United States from 1877 to 1945. He was written and presented on a wide variety of topics, but his emphasis is on agricultural and technological history. He is currently working on two projects: the first involving governmental programs aimed at reducing disease among African-Americans living in Mississippi during the 1930’s and 1940’s, and the second a history of the reintroduction of white-tailed deer to Mississippi in the 1950’s and 1960’s.
