Jeffrey Peter Hart (February 23, 1930 – February 16, 2019) was an American cultural critic, essayist and columnist. He was born in Brooklyn, New York. Hart was Professor Emeritus of English at Dartmouth College.[1] Hart took a leave of absence from Dartmouth in 1968 to work for the abortive presidential campaign of Governor of California Ronald Reagan. This role led to brief service as a White House speechwriter for Richard Nixon.

Hart died on February 16, 2019 in Fairlee, Vermont of complications from dementia, aged 88.[2][3]
