MacArthur Fellows

Very interesting to look over the entire list of MacArthur Fellows. What list of grant winners could include Cindy Sherman, Sam Mockbee, David Foster Wallace, and Nora England (Ms. England is my all-time favorite anthropological linguist) And congratulations to ornithologist Rick Prum for receiving a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation fellowship this year. I met Rick and his documentary cinematographer wife Anne Johnson Prum in a very long dugout canoe on the Rio Aquarico in eastern Ecuador in 1991. They had even more gear than me.

Another interesting tidbit about the list is to see that photographer Lynsey Adario isn't listed with the photographers, but instead with the journalists. I wonder if that's her choice or that of the selection committee.
