Cord A. Scott is an American academic who studies “war themed comics from World War II to Operation Iraqi Freedom”. Scott has published one book and a number of articles in academic journals that more closely examine the role of comic books in social history.


Academic life

Cord Scott earned a BA degree in History from Minot State University in 1991 and an MA in International Relations from Baylor University in 1992. In 2011, Cord Scott received his PhD in American History from Loyola University Chicago.

The topic of his dissertation was Comics and Conflict: War and Patriotically Themed Comics in American Cultural History From World War II Through the Iraq War and it looked closely at how "war- and patriotically-themed comics evolved" and served as "a mirror of American society" during times of conflict.

He has taught as an Adjunct Professor at a number of Chicago area schools including Harold Washington College and Triton College. He also spent a year teaching at the University of Maryland University College in Okinawa, Japan as a Professor of Liberal Arts.


Partly due to his experiences as an educator, Scott served as a consultant on the 2012 documentary-based TV show Inside World War II. He also consulted for the Pritzker Military Museum and Library's exhibition “Don’t Be a Dope: Training Comics in World War II and the Korean War" that opened in 2012.
