David Goldberg
David Goldberg, the son of Russian immigrants who became a distinguished professor at the University of Michigan, died of cancer June 13, 2000 at his home in Ann Arbor, MI.
Goldberg spent some of his undergraduate years in Ann Arbor studying history but earned his bachelor's degree from Wayne State University.He came to the University of Michigan in 1952 to begin his graduate studies in sociology, demography and statistics.He was affiliated with this institution for the remainder of his life.Goldberg became an instructor in the Department of Sociology in 1956 and advanced to professor in 1968.He directed the Population Studies Center from 1972 to 1976 and the Detroit Area Study from 1977 to 1981.He also served as Vice President of the Population Association of America.
For much of his early career, Goldberg analyzed the determinants of fertility using information from the first DAS studies and from the pioneering Indianapolis fertility survey.In the 1960s, he initiated his own large-scale fertility surveys in Turkey and Mexico -long before birth rates in those countries started to decline.
Two of his papers are models of the demographer's ken.His 1962 paper in Population Studies about two generation urbanites carefully measured the effects of a rural background upon the childbearing of urban women in the early baby boom years.
Goldberg was also a dedicated and serious educator.He was particularly proud of his ability to teach introductory statistics, especially to students who were reluctant to recognize the value of the quantitative approach in social science.Perhaps no other instructor spent as much time as Goldberg did in developing and administering imaginative tests for his statistics students.He was also very proud of his ability to help dedicated graduate students complete their dissertations.In the course of his 31 years as a faculty member in this department, Goldberg chaired 28 dissertation committees.Those students can be found at leading universities occupying roles as professor, director, and university president.
After a rich and productive career as a scholar, teacher and colleague, Goldberg retired in 1997.His wife, Jeanette, died that same year.His younger daughter, Debra, lives in Ann Arbor while his older daughter, Susan, lives in San Jose.
