Death and legacy
After Nagel's unexpected death, age 67, the Policy Studies Journal published, in 2003, a series of articles about Nagel's personal and academic life, entitled "Symposium in Honor of Stuart S. Nagel".
On September 13, 2007, University of Illinois Professor Robert Weissberg wrote in an essay, ""The Hidden Impact of Political Correctness", that Nagel committed suicide partially because of an anonymous accusation of racism and workplace violence that resulted in an internal investigation and two federal trials.
