SIDELIGHTS: Harry J.M. Hüttner once told CA: "I have studied sociology with a major in methodology. As a scholar, I am engaged in multilevel research, especially on the problems involved in the 'operationalization,' measurement, and observation of (collective) properties from institutions and organizations. My research activities concern the effects of values and norms as contextual properties of human behavior and of the opinions of individuals. I am also interested in local history."
