Ann Jensen wrote "I wonder if anyone recognises the name LAZARSFELD."

My Aunt and Uncle, Franzi and Paul Gruenhut were members of the Verband
sozialistischer Mittelschuler in Vienna in the 1920s and early 30s. Their
friend Paul Lazarsfeld, who went on to become a famous sociologist in the
US, was one of the founders of this group. It seems likely that Paul was
related to your Lazersfelds.

Paul was born in 1901 in Vienna. He emigrated to the US in 1933 and taught
at Columbia University between 1949 and 1969, where he founded the Bureau of
Applied Social Research. Paul Lazarsfeld was considered to have been the
most important influence on quantitative sociological research in the 20th
century making major contributions to mathematical sociology and the study
of mass communications and voting behavior.
