Educated at Yale College, Sumner graduated in 1863 and went to Europe where he studied languages and history at the University of Gottingen and theology and philosophy at Oxford University. He returned to the U.S. and became a tutor at Yale in 1867. The following year he became an ordained minister and left Yale to become a rector. In 1872, he returned to Yale to become professor of political and social science. Sumner is said to have delivered the first course in sociology at an American university in 1875. He continued to teach at Yale until his retirement. In 1907, he published Folkways, a landmark volume in sociology that gave Sumner worldwide recognition. In 1908, he became the president of the American Sociological Association. Sumner's students at Yale during his years of teaching included Irving Fisher and Thorstein Veblen. His other works include A History of American Currency (1874), Lectures on the History of Protection in the United States (1879), What Social Classes Owe to Each Other (1883), Protectionism (1885), Alexander Hamilton (1890), Robert Morris (1892), A History of Banking in All the Leading Nations (1896) and The Science of Society (1927 Posthumous).
