Mack then invited Duster back to Northwestern, where he wrote a dissertation on social responses to abnormality and mental illness, receiving his PhD in He then did research in Sweden where he met—and argued about race in America with—Gunnar Myrdal.

His remarks were brief and polite, but still he received threatening phone calls and found garbage dumped on his lawn. Friends say this eventually convinced him to move to the University of California-Berkeley and take a position at the Center for Research and Development in Higher Education.
