    Biography

    Corinne Lathrop Gilb (1925 - 2003) received her Ph.D. in the History of American Civilization from Radcliffe- Harvard and taught history at the university level for 37 years, retiring as Professor Emeritus from Wayne State University in 1994. The first director of UC Berkeley's Regional Cultural (Oral) History Project, her interviews with early Teamster leaders and key figures in the 1934 San Francisco labor strike remain seminal research sources in libraries throughout the country. As Planning Director for the City of Detroit under Mayor Coleman Young, she produced the 1985 Master Plan for the City's future. She also served as consultant to the California legislature, delegate to NGO meetings at the United Nations, and Vice President of the International Society for the Comparative Study of Civilizations. A dynamic public speaker who had an international following, Dr. Gilb is best known as the author of Hidden Hierarchies: The Professions and Government. Selections of her other writings can be found in Toward Holistic History: The Odyssey of an Interdisciplinary Historian, published by Atherton Press.
