corsaroWilliam Corsaro , one of Glen Elder’s earliest doctoral students in our Department of Sociology at UNC, received a Distinguished Career Award (2013) from the ASA Section on Children and Youth in NYC.  Glen told us that “More than anyone I know, Bill led the way in establishing the sociological study of children and childhood. At the time of his doctorate, psychology was the disciplinary field for studying children and their development.
