Daniel Patrick Moynihan, the statesman, social scientist, presidential adviser, and four-term Democratic U.S. senator from New York, died on March 26, 2003 in a Washington hospital from a ruptured appendix. Over more than four decades of public service, Moynihan influenced policy on a multitude of subjects, ranging from the architecture of federal buildings to car safety. During a stint as a professor of education and urban politics at Harvard University's graduate school of education he spearheaded a two-year-long reanalysis of the federal report “ Equality of Educational Opportunity,” by James S. Coleman. Known for his rhetorical flourishes, Moynihan, as a senator, also was quoted as comparing the national education goals that originated with the first President George Bush and the nation's governors to Soviet grain-production goals.
