(1915–1994) Milton Wittman played a key role in the expansion of opportunities for social work education and for the involvement of social workers in the provision of mental health services. Born in New York City, his social work education and career began in the Midwest. He received a BA degree from the University of Nebraska and an MA degree from the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration. He later received a doctorate in social work from the Columbia University School of Social Work, where he taught for a year after his retirement, and completed a year of postdoctoral study at the London School of Economics.
