Robert Coles is a child psychiatrist and writer at Harvard University. While much of his professional career was based at Harvard, Coles spent most of the 1960s and 1970s living in Georgia and devoted considerable attention to studying minority children. Perhaps best known for his five-volume series Children of Crisis, Coles contributed significantly to the emerging field of oral history during his years in the South.--From Oral Histories of the American South biography.
