A collection of tributes to Linton “Lin” Freeman, sociology research professor who passed away in August, has been published in Connections, a publication of the International Network for Social Network Analysis. The collection includes contributions for UCI alumni and faculty - including sociologists Carter Butts and Katie Faust - and top figures in the field of social networks.
Freeman served as dean of the UCI School of Social Sciences from 1979 to 1982. He retired from UCI in 1994 and continued on as a research professor in sociology, teaching courses in social network analysis. Prior to his UCI service, Freeman held professorships at Syracuse University (1956-67), University of Pittsburgh (1967-69), University of Hawaii (1969-73), and Lehigh University (1973-79) where he was the Lucy G. Moses Distinguished Professor of Sociology.
