About the Author:

Earl R. Babbie

Chapman University

 

http://www1.chapman.edu/~babbie/

 

Earl Babbie was born in Detroit, Michigan, in 1938, but his family chose to return to Vermont three months later, and he grew up there and in New Hampshire. In 1956, he set off for Harvard Yard, where he spent the next four years learning more than he initially planned. After three years with the U.S. Marine Corps, mostly in Asia, he began graduate studies at the University of California, Berkeley. He received his Ph.D. from Berkeley in 1969. He taught sociology at the University of Hawaii from 1968 through 1979, took time off from teaching and research to write full time for 8 years, and then joined the faculty at Chapman University in Southern California in 1987. Although he is the author of several research articles and monographs, he is best known for the many texts he has written, which have been widely adopted in colleges throughout the United States and the world. He also has been active in the American Sociological Association for 25 years and currently serves on the ASA’s executive committee. He is also past president of the Pacific Sociological Association and California Sociological Association.



Fred Halley, Associate Professor Emeritus, SUNY-Brockport, received his bachelor’s degree in sociology and philosophy from Ashland College and his master’s and doctorate degrees from Case Western Reserve University and the University of Missouri, respectively. Since 1970, he has worked to bring both instructional and research computer applications into the undergraduate sociology curriculum. Halley has been recognized for his leadership in the instructional computing sections of the Eastern and Midwest Sociological Societies and the American Sociological Association. At Brockport, he served as a collegewide social science computing consultant and directed Brockport’s Institute for Social Science Research and the College’s Data Analysis Laboratory. Off campus, Halley directed and consulted on diverse community research projects that were used to establish urban magnet schools, evaluate a Head Start family service center, locate an expressway, and design a public transportation system for a rural county. Now residing in Rochester, New York, he plays an active role in a faith-based mentoring program for ex-offenders, and he volunteers for Micrecycle, an organization that refurbishes computers used by those on the other side of the computer divide in schools, daycares, youth centers, and other community organizations.

Jeanne Zaino, Professor of Political Science, Iona College, earned a bachelor’s degree in political science and mass communications at the University of Connecticut, Storrs. She received a master’s degree in survey research at the Roper Center, where she had the fortune of studying with the legendary Bud Roper. She went on to earn a master’s degree and Ph.D. in political science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She is currently a professor of Political Science at Iona College in New Rochelle, New York, where she formerly served as Dean of the School of Arts & Science, Director of the Honors Program, and Chair of the Department.  You can follow Dr. Zaino on twitter @JeanneZaino or email her at jzaino@iona.edu
