Professor Emeritus James Carman Dies at 73

James Carman, a professor emeritus at the Haas School and a pioneer in economics and the marketing of health care systems, died on Thursday, December 9, at his home in Kensington. He was 73 and had been diagnosed with prostate cancer two years prior.

A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Carman served as a professor at Haas from 1962 to 1992. He also twice served as associate dean there and was acting dean in 1983. Carman was director of the Graduate Program in Health Management for four years after its establishment in 1991.

Carman's research focused on services management and marketing, distribution channels and health care delivery systems, customer satisfaction and quality management, public policy and strategic alliances, and the transition difficulties facing central European economies.

He contributed to 25 books and wrote "Marketing: Principles and Methods" in 1973. Carman also was the author or co-author of more than 60 articles in professional journals.

He is survived by his wife, Carol; daughters, Barbara Peschiera and Kathryn Fulton; son, Paul Carman; and four grandchildren.
