About the Author
William H. Whyte is most often remembered by the public as the author of The Organization Man, the 1956 best-selling examination of modern American society. Urbanologists remember him as a student of urban behavior and designer of living spaces. He was both, of course, but first he was a Marine, a fact he paid homage to when he said on the jacket of The Organization Man that he "was educated at Princeton and in the United States Marine Corps at Guadalcanal."
