Nancy Datan

1941 - 1987

Nancy Datan (1941–1987) was a trailblazing feminist psychologist best known for her work on the psychology of older women. Born and raised in Chicago, she attended Chicago's Shimer College via the early entrance program, graduating at age 18 in 1959 and remaining a fierce advocate of Great Books education throughout her life. After obtaining her master's degree, she spent the 1960s in Israel, where she held a variety of teaching and research positions. Datan returned to Chicago to complete her Ph.D., which she received in 1971. She then taught at West Virginia University from 1973 to 1984, and at the University of Wisconsin in Green Bay from 1984 until her death of breast cancer in 1987. Datan is particularly remembered for the book she coauthored with Benjamin Maoz, A Time to Reap: The Middle Age of Women in Five Israeli Sub-Cultures (1981). (from Shimer College Wiki)
