I'm especially pleased because Sir Peter Crane2 was inducted at the same time. Of course Peter is being inducted now rather than having been inducted years ago (he's been a member of the Royal Society of London since 1998 and a foreign associate of the NAS since 2001) simply because he moved to Connecticut less than a year ago to become Dean of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. Still, it's nice to be part of any group that includes him.
1CASE did elect me after all. How exclusive can it be?
2Yes, Sir Peter Crane. He was knighted in 2004.
