In Memory of Phil Converse

Phil Converse Philip E. Converse, an authority on public opinion and electoral behavior and past Director of the Center for Political Studies (CPS), passed away on December 30, 2014. Converse’s wide-ranging contributions to the field of political science changed how the world understood political behavior, according to Donald R. Kinder, Research Professor at CPS. “By brilliant example, in paper after paper, Converse demonstrated the value of a quantitative approach to understanding politics,” said Kinder. “His influence is profound. He is surely one of the most important social scientists of the 20th century.”

Memorial Service on Fri, April 10, 2015 from
