E. Digby Baltzell photoDigby Baltzell, beloved emeritus professor of sociology, died on Saturday, August 17, 1996. Digby was a true phenomenon, a presence, an original splendid scholar and a fantastic teacher. All of us will miss him personally, professionally, and institutionally. His legacy is rich and I know that Digby Baltzell will continue to be a force on the Penn campus long into the future.
