Disclosure: I was a student of Erving Goffman at UC Berkeley from 1961 to 1965. Along with taking various courses and seminars with him, he was my major advisor in the sociology department, read my French exams, chaired my dissertation committee, and participated in my oral exams. After my degree we became casual friends, a relationship that continued until his death.
