Pres. Oxtoby interviewed by Claremont Courier About American Academy of Arts and Sciences Appointment
Pomona College President David Oxtoby was interviewed in the April 25 issue of the Claremont Courier about his recent appointment to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. The Academy was chartered 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. Academy members are elected on the basis of their leadership in academics, the arts, business, or public affairs and have ranged from Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson to such 20th-century luminaries as Margaret Mead, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Akira Kurosawa.
