Jacquelyn Dowd Hall, a Rhodes alumna and director of the Southern Oral History Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is among 177 of the nation’s most influential artists, scientists, scholars, authors, and institutional leaders recently inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Founded in 1780, the American 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.
“Induction recognizes extraordinary individual achievement and marks a commitment on the part of new members to provide fundamental, non-partisan knowledge for addressing today’s complex challenges,” said American Academy President Leslie C. Berlowitz.
Hall graduated from Rhodes in 1965.
