The Feliks Gross Endowment Awards
Feliks Gross arrived among the great wave of Europeans who transformed American scholarship in the years following the Second World War. With his broad humanistic interests, commitment to social activism and scholarship, he has made a lasting memorable contribution to the intellectual life of his adopted land.
Born in Poland, Feliks Gross received his doctorate from the Jagiellonian University of Cracow, where he was also an assistant professor in sociology. In 1939 he was appointed lecturer in social anthropology by Bronislaw Malinowski. The outbreak of war kept him from this assignment.
