I was reading about the shutdown over at the Chicago Tribune; it had a quote from history of politics named Julian Zelizer. Now, Zelizer is _not_ a common last name, and he's a Professor at Princeton, causing me to go, hey, isn't Viviana Zelizer a Professor of Sociology at Princeton?

Yes!

Anyone else got examples of mother and son (or daughter) working at the same institution as full professors? Because this is the first one I've noticed, but they would not ordinarily be so obvious.

(I'm still resisting the temptation to buy V. Zelizer's _Purchase of Intimacy_, until I've read _Pricing the Priceless Child_. Maybe I'll pick that for Read or Release after I finish the Fred Harvey book.)
