Transcript Margaret Mead was born in 1901 in Philadelphia, oldest of five children. She received a BA in psychology from Barnard College. In 1929, she received her Ph. D. from Columbia University, where she studied under Franz Boaz and Ruth Benedict. Her early Pacific ethnography studies resulted in Coming of Age in Samoa and Growing up in New Guinea, books which became international bestsellers and translated into many languages. She developed a lifelong connection with the American Museum of Natural History in New York, were she held various posts throughout her life; in 1969 she retired as emeritus curator of ethnography. She first taught at Columbia in 1940 and remained associated with the school until her death, though she refused the offers of tenured professorship. She received 28 honorary doctorates, and taught at several universities, such as New York University, Emory University, Yale University, The New School for Social Research, University of Cincinnati, and Fordham University. She was president of the Society for Applied Anthropology, the World Federation of Mental Health, the American Anthropological Association, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She died of pancreatic cancer in 1978. In the humanities lecture series of Southeastern Massachusetts Technological Institute, Professor Mead talks about the topic of alienation.
