Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Harold Garfinkel (October 29, 1917 - April 21, 2011) was a Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is known for establishing and developing ethnomethodology as a field of inquiry in sociology. Garfinkel was raised in Newark, New Jersey, in the years preceding the Great Depression. His father, a furniture dealer, had hoped his son would follow him into the family business. When the time arrived for Harold to attend college, he studied accounting at the University of Newark. In the summer following graduation he worked as a volunteer at a Quaker work camp in Cornelia, Georgia. This was a horizon-broadening experience for Garfinkel. He worked there with students with a wide variety of interests and backgrounds, and this experience influenced his decision to later take up sociology as a career.show more
