A memorial service in honor of Murray B. Levin ’48, a retired political science professor who taught at Boston University and the Harvard Extension School, will be held on Friday, April 28, at 3 p.m. at Boston University’s Photonics Laboratory Building, Room 226, 8 St. Mary’s Street, Boston.

Levin was a popular faculty member at B.U. where he taught for 30 years. He wrote extensively on political discourse and was known for his radical and dissident writing. Among his books were The Alienated Voter, Political Hysteria in America, and Teach Me: Kids Will Learn When Oppression is the Lesson. He also appeared regularly as a political analyst for the major television networks.

Levin earned his A.B. with distinction from Harvard College in 1948, his M.A. from Columbia University in 1950, and his Ph.D from Columbia in 1955. In addition to teaching courses at the Harvard Extension School Levin was also a member of the Quincy House Senior Common Room.

Levin, who died in December, 1999, at 72, is survived by his wife, Helen Jacobson, three sons, and a daughter.
