M.A. 1942, and Columbia, Ph.D. 1948, Katz taught philosophy at Vassar College, 1948-1961, and was a research associate in
psychiatry at UC Berkeley, 1958-60. While at Stanford he conducted a five-year longitudinal study of students (drawn from
Stanford and UC Berkeley), which became the basis for the book NO TIME FOR YOUTH.
