Alfred Appel, Jr. (January 31, 1934 – May 2, 2009)[1][2] was a scholar noted for his investigations into the works of Vladimir Nabokov, modern art, and Jazz modernism.[3]

As a student at Cornell University, Appel took a course from Nabokov. His education was interrupted by a stint in the Army, after which he completed his undergraduate education and PhD in English Literature at Columbia University in 1963.

After teaching at Columbia for a few years, he joined the faculty of Northwestern University, where he taught until his retirement in 2000. He died of heart failure.[4] Appel was married until his death to Nina Appel, dean of Loyola University Chicago's law school from 1983-2004. They had two children, Karen Oshman and television writer and producer Richard Appel.[1][5][6]
