Jewish Women on the Map - Princeton University
In 1968, sociologist Suzanne Keller became the first woman to be made a tenured professor at Princeton University. After receiving her Ph.D. at Columbia University in 1953, she served as a researcher and teacher at several universities and institutions before coming to Princeton in 1966. Considered a pioneer in the study of class and power structures, Professor Keller was the author of several books, including Beyond the Ruling Class: Strategic Elites in Modern Society (1963) and Community: Pursuing the Dream, Living the Reality (2003). Born in 1927 in Vienna, Austria, she immigrated to New York City as a child. She passed away in 2010.
