Harry Scheiber Elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences
Professor Harry Scheiber has been selected to become a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. The director of the Earl Warren Legal Institute, Scheiber’s areas of expertise include American legal history, environmental law, modern judicial reform, and Japanese-U.S. relations and ocean policy. Scheiber is part of a select class of 187 fellows, including four college presidents, three Nobel Prize winners and four Pulitzer Prize winners. He is one of 13 newly elected UC Berkeley faculty members.
The academy was founded by John Adams and other scholar-patriots in 1780 "to cultivate every art and science which may tend to advance the interest, honor, dignity and happiness of a free, independent and virtuous people." Its members conduct nonpartisan studies on issues ranging from international security, social policy and education to the humanities.
The new fellows will be inducted at a ceremony at the academy's headquarters in Cambridge, Mass., in October. For a complete list of the 2003 fellows, visit the American Academy of Arts and Sciences website.
