AMERICAN ACADEMY OF ARTS AND SCIENCES

Describing itself as “a champion of scholarship, civil dialogue, and useful knowledge,” the American Academy of Arts & Sciences was established in 1780 by John Adams, James Bowdoin, and John Hancock, and other major figures of the time. Over the succeeding two centuries, its rolls grew to include George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, and more than 200 Nobel laureates, more than 100 Pulitzer Prize winners—and scores of Guggenheim Fellows. Election to membership in this prestigious organization is a singular honor.
