DEATH
Dr. Alvin Z. Rubinstein, Political Science

Dr. Alvin Z. Rubinstein, professor of political science, died yesterday, December 18, at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, following a stroke that he had suffered on December 6. He was 74 years old.

Dr. Rubinstein was a member of the political science faculty for 44 years and, before that, earned his M.A. and Ph.D. at Penn. He was planning to retire at the end of this semester and had taught his last class at Penn the day before the stroke occurred. "He retained his characteristic strength and vigor until that tragic event, and he and his beloved wife Frankie would have greatly enjoyed retirement together," said Dr. Jack Nagel, chair of the department.

The Political Science Department and other friends of Dr. Rubinstein are planning a memorial service to be held at Penn in the spring semester.
