Abstract

P1: GVG Sex Roles [sers] pp380-Memoriam February 14, 2002 10:6 Style file version Nov. 19th, 1999 ° C Sex Roles, Vol. 45, Nos. 5/6, September 2001 ( 2002) On July 12, 2001, Sex Roles lost its Editor, and the field of women’s studies lost one of its most powerful feminist leaders. On that sad day, Sue Rosenberg Zalk died suddenly of a brain aneurysm while visiting her elderly father in Florida. Sue was born in New York in 1945, and attended New York University for her B.A., and Yeshiva University for her Master’s and Ph.D. She is best known for her contributions to the child development literature in the areas of race and gender attitude development, and for her prolific writing and advocacy in women’s studies. Additionally, for many years she provided extensive service to City University of New York, where she most recently served as Vice President for Student Affairs; to the American Psychological Association, where she was extremely active in the divisions of psychology of women, and of social issues (Divisions 35 and 9). She also served in many other professional and community organizations. Sue had an extraordinary combination of attributes and skills that exem- plified the consummate Renaissance woman. In addition to women’s stud- ies, her scholarly accomplishments cut across many areas, including child development, social-personality, clinical, and educational psychology. But, as Sex Roles readers and authors know, her magic went way beyond the written word and her high achievements as a teacher, researcher, and ad- ministrator. Her warmth, humor, intelligence, and passion affected all who interacted with her.
