David Blondheim started his academic career at the University of Illinois as a language instructor. In 1917, he returned to Hopkins as an associate professor. In 1924 he was promoted to full professor in the French Department, and a short time later he became a professor of Romance philology. David Blondheim specialized in medieval French and French linguistics and was particularly interested in the Jewish influences in Romance languages.
David Blondheim died in Baltimore, March 19, 1934.
