Fall Term Montgomery Fellows

I don’t believe it’s been officially announced yet, but the Montgomery Fellows for the fall term (theme: Science and Society) will be:

Dr. Rita Colwell (Oct. 10-14), former director of the National Science Foundation and past president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

Dr. Oliver Sacks (Oct. 19-20), physician, writer, and inspiration for the movie “Awakenings.”

Dr. Sidney Altman (Oct. 31-Nov. 4), Nobel laureate in chemistry and former Dean of Yale College.

There are many other relevant speakers who will not be coming: James Watson, Richard Dawkins (for sheer ability to provoke), Bruce Alberts and E. O. Wilson, to name a few. Nevertheless, this has the potential to be a good lineup.
