10/1/2011

Press Release

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – United States Senators John F. Kerry (D-MA) and Scott Brown (R-MA), and United States Representative Michael E. Capuano (D-MA) have entered statements into the Congressional Record saluting the American Academy of Arts and Sciences on the occasion of the Induction of its 2011 Class of new members on October 1, 2011.

Capuano’s Resolution extends “heartfelt congratulations” to the Academy and its newest members, wishing them “good luck and Godspeed with future endeavors.”

Kerry’s statement reads, in part: “The American Academy of Arts and Sciences is currently chaired by Louis W. Cabot and led by President Leslie C. Berlowitz, and is a vital center of knowledge focused on the great challenges and concerns of the day…I wish [Academy members] all the best and thank them for their contributions.”

Brown’s statement reads: “It is an honor and pleasure to recognize their continuing service and intellectual leadership not only in Massachusetts, but also nationally and across the world. I wish the Academy good luck and continued success in their future endeavors.

The 2011 Class of the Academy includes leading scientists, authors, and business executives, to the heads of academic, philanthropic, and cultural institutions in the United States and abroad. Those elected this year are winners of Nobel, Pritzker, and Pulitzer prizes; the Turing Award; MacArthur and Guggenheim Fellowships; Kennedy Center Honors; and Grammy, Golden Globe, and Academy awards.
