“I am honored to welcome these outstanding and influential individuals to
the nation’s oldest and most illustrious learned society,” said Academy

Election to the Academy has always been one of the highest honors in the
United States. The Academy has elected as Fellows and Foreign Honorary
Members the finest minds and most influential leaders from each generation,
including George Washington and Ben Franklin in the eighteenth century,
Daniel Webster and Ralph Waldo Emerson in the nineteenth, and Albert
Einstein and Winston Churchill in the twentieth. “The American Academy is
unique among academies for its breadth and scope,” said Leslie C. Berlowitz,
the Academy’s Executive Officer. “Throughout its history, the Academy has
gathered individuals with diverse perspectives to participate in studies and
projects focusing on advancing intellectual thought and constructive action.
We know that this year’s members will continue the Academy’s tradition of
cherishing knowledge in service to society.”

The Academy was founded in 1780 by John Adams, James Bowdoin, John Hancock,
and other scholar-patriots “to cultivate every art and science which may
tend to advance the interest, honor, dignity, and happiness of a free,
independent, and virtuous people.” The unique structure of the American
Academy allows the Academy to conduct interdisciplinary studies on
international security, social policy, education, and the humanities that
draw on the range of academic and intellectual disciplines of its members.
The current membership of over 4,500 includes more than 150 Nobel laureates
and 50 Pulitzer Prize winners.

The Academy will welcome this year’s new Fellows and Foreign Honorary
Members at its annual Induction Ceremony in October at the Academy’s
headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
