Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Professor Lloyd H. Rogler began his research career as a sociologist studying how families living in the economically impoverished neighborhoods of San Juan coped with mental illness. Through exacting research and experimentation, he has helped achieve legitimacy for the field of cultural psychiatry that it never had when he launched his career more than 40 years ago after receiving a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Iowa. He has had academic appointments at several universities, including the University of Puerto Rico, Yale, and Case Western Reserve.
