I was thinking of things more along the lines of history and philosophy.

History and philosophy are less obvious cases. Some of the historians whose works I appreciate were college professors. Still, Im not convinced that government funding increased the number of historians or philosophers worthy of notice (even before the culture of political correctness).

Concerning the importance of philosophy do you think that our civilization would be noticeably different if Kant or Schopenhauer has never been born?

Frankly, one could say the same thing about STEM fields.

Yes, very different (though not necessarily better). Consider replacing those philosophers with Locke and Marx, to make it even more obvious.
