A memorial service for Suzanne Keller, a Princeton professor emeritus of sociology, is planned for 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, in Betts Auditorium in the School of Architecture.
Keller, who conducted pioneering research on elite life and on community in America, and was the first woman to earn a tenured faculty position at Princeton, died of a stroke Dec. 9 at Mercy Hospital in Miami. She was 83.
The memorial service will feature a lecture titled "Outsiders on the Inside? Women in Power, 1971-2011" by D. Michael Lindsay, an assistant professor of sociology at Rice University who earned his Ph.D. at Princeton in 2006 under Keller's guidance.
A full obituary on Keller is available online. Memorial contributions may be made to the Passage Theatre Company in Trenton, N.J.
