versity, was named head of
the social science depart-
ment of the College of the
City of Detroit, which evolved
into Wayne State University.
He held the position of pro-
fessor of economics and
chairman of the department,
a role he filled for some 30
years.
He lectured at the Univer-
sity of Michigan, at the na-
tional convention of the
American Economic Associ-
ation, and gave the 100th
anniversary lecture marking
the birth of Justice Louis D.
Brandeis.
In 1936-39 Prof. Levin
served as president of the
Detroit Jewish Social Service
Bureau. He was a member
of the Board of United He-
brew Schools, of the budget
review committee of the
Council of Social Agencies of
Metropolitan Detroit, the
board of the Jewish Voca-
tional Service, and in 1958-
60 as president of the Jewish
National Fund Council of
Detroit.
Prof. Levin's articles on
education, labor, technology,
population, and Jewish
themes, have appeared in
more than a dozen leading
professional journals in this
country and abroad. His
name was chosen for the
first 1942 edition of the Di-
rectory of American Schol-
ars, and has been included
in subsequent editions. It has
also appeared in the various
editions of Who's Who in
America and Who's Who in
World Jewry.
In 1958 there was estab-
lished at Wayne State Uni-
versity the Samuel M. Levin
Economics Award. In recent
years it has awarded a cash
prize of $300 to an economics
graduate or undergraduate
student who wins out in an
annual economics essay com-
petition.
Two books by Prof. Levin
have been published.
For a period of more than
two years, Prof. Levin, who
is 86, has been giving weekly
lectures Sealing with chal-
lenging problems at the
Jewish Center.

But at that time they shall
call Jerusalem 'The throne
of the Lord,' and all the na-
tions shall gather there, to
celebrate the name of the
Lord in Jerusalem, and they
shall no more follow the
stubborn promptings of their
evil minds. —Jeremiah 3:17
