NEW YORK (AP) — Nathan Glazer, a prominent sociologist and public intellectual who assisted on a classic study of conformity, "The Lonely Crowd," and co-authored a groundbreaking document of non-conformity, "Beyond the Melting Pot," has died at 95.
Glazer's daughter, Sarah Glazer, confirmed her father died at his home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Saturday morning.
