Alexander Goldweiser (1880-1940) was professor of anthropology and sociology. He was born in Kiev and immigrated to the United States in 1911. He lectured at Columbia University, the Rand School of Social Science, the New School for Social Research, the University of Oregon, Reed College, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. At Madison, in 1937-38, he served as Saul Bellow's anthropology thesis advisor. When his thesis kept turning into a story, they decided, mutually, that he wasn't cut out for science.
