Alba (born December 22, 1942) is an American sociologist, who is a Distinguished Professor at the Graduate Center, CUNY. He is known for developing assimilation theory to fit the contemporary, multi-racial era of immigration, with studies in America, France and Germany. Alba earned his B.A. in 1963 and Ph.D. in 1974 from Columbia University. Alba's text on assimilation theory (written with Victor Nee), Remaking the American Mainstream (2003) won the Thomas & Znaniecki Award of the American Sociological Association and the Eastern Sociological Society’s Mirra Komarovsky Award. It was one of the most highly cited works in sociology. Alba has also written about the historical realities of assimilation, using Italian Americans to exemplify them. His book, Ethnic Identity: The Transformation of White America, summarizes his thinking on the assimilation of the so-called white ethnics.
The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc., 1985. Hardcover. 304 pages. Illustrations (many in color). Afterword: Tracing the Family. Author's Note. Illustrations Credits. Index. Front board slightly bowed. This was produced with the cooperation of the National Geographic Society and a grant from the Kimberly-Clark Corporation. Ellis Island, in Upper New York Bay, was the gateway for over 12 million immigrants to the U.S. as the United States' busiest immigrant inspection station for over 60 years from 1892 until 1954. Ellis Island was opened January 1, 1892. The island was greatly expanded with land reclamation between 1892 and 1934. Before that, the much smaller original island was the site of Fort Gibson and later a naval magazine. The island was made part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument in 1965 and has hosted a museum of immigration since 1990. It was long considered part of New York, but a 1998 United States Supreme Court decision found that most of the island is in New Jersey. The south side of the island, home to the Ellis Island Immigrant Hospital, is closed to the general public and the object of restoration efforts spearheaded by Save Ellis Island.
