Raised in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Dr. Hilwig became interested in European History due to experiences as an exchange student to Germany and while working for Sicilian immigrants in a pizzeria. He joined the Adams State College faculty in 2000 and later met and married a brilliant sociologist. Drs. Stuart & Stephanie Hilwig are the proud parents of three children.
