About the author (1937)

Robert S. Lynd and Helen Merrell Lynd, American sociologists, became renowned for their pioneering studies of the small city of Muncie, Indiana, which they called Middletown. Not since Tocqueville's Democracy in America has there been such a careful analysis of daily life in an American community. The research in Middletown won Robert Lynd a professorship at Columbia University and Helen Lynd one at Sarah Lawrence College. In the 1970s, a team of sociologists, led by Theodore Caplow, restudied Middletown.
