He has written numerous history-based books as “The New Deal and the South: Essays (Chancellor’s Symposium Series),” “The Diary of Rexford G. Tugwell: The New Deal, 1932-1935 (Contributions in Economics and Economic History),” and “The Catholic Church in Mississippi, 1911-1984: A History (Contributions to the Study of Religion).” He also authored “Study Guide With Map Exercises Vol. 1 To Accompany American History: A Survey, Vol. II: To 1877 (12thEdition)” and “Study Guide With Map Exercises Vol. 2 To Accompany American History: A Survey, Vol. 2 (12thEdition),” and “Have We Overcome?: Race Relations Since Brown (1954-1979)” —which explored “a variety of perspectives on America’s race relations” over the course of two decades.

An active member of his community, Dr. Namorato has served as a teacher at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church and has taught driver education to AARP. He was a volunteer member and driver for the American Red Cross and served as a volunteer for GED programs, helping people to obtain a high school diploma.

Dr. Namorato has stayed connected with his field, serving as president of the Economic and Business History Society, American Catholic Historical Association, and American Historical Association.
