LEWIS--Anthony. The Officers of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences acknowledge with sadness the passing of distinguished journalist, columnist, author and Academy Fellow Anthony Lewis. A courageous voice for individual rights and freedom of the press, he won two Pulitzer Prizes for national reporting, including his transformative work for the New York Times in making the proceedings of the U.S. Supreme Court more understandable to the public. President Bill Clinton honored him with the Presidential Citizens Medal in 2001. We extend our condolences to his wife, the Honorable Margaret H. Marshall, and to his children and grandchildren. Louis W. Cabot, Chair of the Board Leslie C. Berlowitz, President
