Evelynn Hammonds
History of Science Chair, Barbara Gutmann Rosenkrantz Professor of the History of Science, and professor of African and African American Studies Evelynn Hammonds is among this year's inductees elected to membership in The American Academy of Arts & Sciences.

"The Academy was founded in 1780 by John Adams, John Hancock, and others who believed the new republic should honor exceptionally accomplished individuals and engage them in advancing the public good. The Academy’s dual mission remains essentially the same today with members from increasingly diverse fields working together to share ideas and recommendations in the arts, democracy, education, global affairs, and science."

Her election to the AAAS is an especially appropriate recognition of Prof. Hammond's merit as a creative and conscientious member of America's community of scholars.
