ERIK ERIKSON, 91, PSYCHOANALYST, AUTHOR: - May 13, 1994

HARWICH - Psychoanalyst Erik Erikson, whose books broke ground for generations of students of human development, died early yesterday at a nursing home. He was 91.

Erikson died of an infection at the Rosewood Manor Nursing Home, said Diana Eck, a Harvard professor who was a friend of Erikson's.

Erikson was appointed to a Harvard professorship in 1960, even though he had never held a college degree.

He became famous to generations of students for coining the term "identity crisis."

His biographies of figures such as Martin Luther, Gandhi, Jesus, Albert Einstein, William James and Charles Darwin also won wide-ranging acclaim.

Erikson's books include "Childhood and Society" (1950), "Young Man Luther" (1958), and "Identity; Youth and Crisis" (1968).

His book, "Gandhi's Truth" (1969), won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award in 1970.
