Dr. Nevitt Sanford, 86, a psychologist whose response to the rise of the Nazis was to develop scientific methods to study prejudice and hatred, died Friday of a heart attack in a nursing home in Belfast, Maine. In 1968, he founded the Wright Institute in Berkeley, Calif., a graduate school in psychology that emphasizes the study of social problems.

He first gained prominence as a co-author of "The Authoritarian Personality," a study of anti-Semitism published in 1950.

Christopher Cadbury, 86, a wildlife conservationist who established the remote Indian Ocean island of Aride as one of the world's leading sea bird sanctuaries, died June 25 at his home at Pershore, Worcestershire, northwest of London. No cause of death was given. Grandson of one of the Quaker founders of the Cadbury chocolate and food company, Mr. Cadbury ran one of the family's companies before turning to wildlife conservation.
