The University of Chicago where Edward Haskell studied.
Edward Haskell traveled widely throughout Europe with his family and learned to speak six languages. When the family eventually immigrated to the United States, Haskell entered Oberlin College where he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1929. He did postgraduate studies at Columbia University from 1929 to 1930, then he left school to travel and write a book. While waiting to get his book published, he returned to postgraduate studies at Harvard University in 1935. He was a fellow of the University of Chicago from 1940 to 1943, but never completed his thesis and was not awarded a Doctorate degree.
Edward Haskell started his career as an instructor in social science at the University of Denver in 1944. In 1945, he took up the same post at Brooklyn College. He held this post until 1948. He also worked as an instructor at Southern Connecticut State College from 1969 to 1971 and at Columbia University, Teachers College from 1974 to 1975.
Haskell also taught short courses and seminars at West Virginia University, Southern Connecticut State College, Drew University, and the New School for Social Research. Haskell was instrumental in the formation of the Council for Unified Research and Education (C.U.R. E., Inc.). This was a private non-profit research organization of scientists committed to the unification of science and education. Their goal was the synthesis of all knowledge into a single discipline.
Edward Haskell published his first book, Lance: A Novel about Multicultural Men, in 1941. He also was editor and contributor to Coping with Increasing Complexity: Implications of General Semantics and General Systems Theory. In 1972, he published Full Circle: The Moral Force of Unified Science, a book that has been out of print for many years but is now available online. The greater part of Haskell's work on Unified Science work remains unpublished. Together with Harold G. Cassidy, he wrote Plain Truth and Redirection of the Cold War that was published in 1961.
Edward Haskell was a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Society for Applied Anthropology, National Association of Environmental Professionals, Appalachian Mountain Club and Mendelssohn Glee Club.
Edward Haskell was married twice. However, he had no children of his own.
