In Memory

Sometimes we hear belatedly about the passing of a classmate. Such was the case with Peter, who died in January 2010 from prostate cancer in New York City.

Peter was with us only one year before returning to his home in Los Angeles, where he attended UCLA and went on to get a doctorate in sociology from Northwestern. He served as a professor at the University of Delaware, Columbia University, the University of London and York University in Toronto. He authored several books in his field. Survivors are two children, Joshua and Caitlin.
