    Biographical/Historical Sketch

    Joseph Katz came to Stanford University in 1961 as Research Coordinator at the Institute for the Study of Human Problems; he was executive director when he left in 1970 to join the faculty at SUNY Stony Brook. Educated at the University of Pennsylvania, 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.
