From 1966 to 1980, Banner taught at Princeton University, where he attained the rank of associate professor and chaired the Program in American Civilization and the Program in Continuing Education.

Writings

Banner’s writings have been diverse and influential. In To the Hartford Convention, which Gordon S. Wood called “truly outstanding” and Jack P Greene termed “an essential contribution to the early political history of the new nation,” Banner tried to bring the Federalist Party back into consideration as fully committed to the principles of the American Revolution and the norms of republican government. Diane Ravitch called The Elements of Teaching, which Banner wrote with Harold C. Cannon, “a true classic,” and Andrew Delbanco termed its second edition “a wise and wonderfully concise reflection on a subject about which one might think everything worth saying had already been said.” Banner’s Being a Historian was characterized as “a remarkable work of analysis, advice, and warning.”
