Ralph Linton (Philadelphia, 27 February 1893 - New Haven, 24 December 1953) was one of the most respected American anthropologists of the mid-twentieth century of his time, and is particularly remembered for his texts The Study of Man (1936) and The Tree of Culture (1955). One of Linton's major contributions to anthropology was finding a distinction between status and role.
