Andover Presents Fuess Award to Two Classmates
On January 30, Phillips Academy presented its highest honor, the Claude Moore Fuess Award, to two of Harvard University's highest ranking professors in recognition of their "distinguished contribution to public service." The two professors, George M. Whitesides and Robert C. Darnton, both graduated from Andover in 1957. Whitesides, a pioneer in the field of nanotechnology, is cofounder of Diagnostics for All as well as 12 other companies. Among other things, Whitesides work is aimed at making medical care more accessible to all. Darnton, a prolific author and cultural historian, is leading the effort to build the Digital Public Library of America, which is set to launch in April of this year.
