John D. DeLamater
John D. DeLamater passed away on Wednesday, December 13th 2017 at the age of 77.
John DeLamater was the Conway-Bascom Professor of Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He received his Ph.D in the interdisciplinary program in Social Psychology at the University of Michigan, and brought a perspective combining psychological and sociological theory and methods to all of his work. He published more than 50 articles in numerous journals, including Journal of Marriage and Family, Journal of Gerontology: Social Sciences, Journal of Sex Research, Sex Roles, Public Opinion Quarterly, and Psychological Bulletin. He taught courses in social psychology at the introductory and graduate levels, and won several teaching awards. He was co-author of Social Psychology (8th ed), Westview, 2014, and co-editor of the Handbook of Social Psychology , 2014, in the Handbooks of Sociology and Social Research series.
His affiliation with the Springer Handbook series began when Howard Kaplan encouraged him to edit the first edition of the Handbook of Social Psychology, published in 2003. Howard was a good friend and mentor. DeLamater continued to be involved, reviewing proposals for potential additions to the Series, and was honored to be selected to follow in Howard’s footsteps.
Springer very much valued John DeLamater’s commitment to the series and we are grateful for the beautiful collection of books he helped establish over the years. It was a privilege to have worked with him and he will be deeply missed.
