Evolutionary biologist inducted into American Academy of Arts and Sciences
Date:10/21/2011

RIVERSIDE, Calif. David Reznick, a professor of biology at the University of California, Riverside, was among 179 of the nation's most influential artists, scientists, scholars, authors, and institutional leaders who were inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences at a ceremony in Cambridge, Mass., on Oct. 1.

The academy is one of the nation's oldest and most prestigious learned societies, and an independent research center that draws from its members' expertise to conduct studies in science and technology policy, global security, the humanities and culture, social policy, and education.

"The induction ceremony was remarkable for the atmosphere of tradition, great, concise speeches by a select subset of recipients, and the collection of highly accomplished people from the humanities and sciences who were inducted as fellows, not to mention singer-songwriter Paul Simon's closing American Song," Reznick said. "I confess that I often wondered why I was there, but I was and some members of my family were there to share it with me. I suspect they saw it as an improbable fate for the boy they knew who collected salamanders."

The 231st class of the academy includes winners of Nobel, Pritzker, and Pulitzer prizes; the Turing Award; MacArthur and Guggenheim Fellowships; Kennedy Center Honors; and Grammy, Golden Globe, and Academy awards. Foreign honorary members from Argentina, India, Israel, Japan, and the United Kingdom were also inducted.

Participants in the ceremony included: researcher and biologist Frances Arnold of the California Institute of Technology; author and literary critic Denis Donoghue of New York University; Rachel Hadas, poet and essayist at Rutgers University; Hollywood film producer Kathleen Kennedy; David Page, geneticist
