CWRU's Beall elected to American Academy of Arts and Sciences
Date:4/25/2013

In her pioneering studies, Cynthia Beall became used to the heady atmosphere high in the mountains of Tibet, Ethiopia and Peru. Now she'll share rarified air with Nobel laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners and more as a new member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
