Behold Ronald Schuchard, Emory University's Goodrich C. White Professor of English. A leading scholar of T.S. Eliot and W.B. Yeats, professor Schuchard was named a 2012 Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. From the press release:

The 220 new Fellows and Foreign Honorary Members announced today join one of the world's leading centers for independent policy research. Members contribute to Academy publications and studies of science and technology policy, energy and global security, social policy and American institutions, the humanities and culture, and education.

Since its founding in 1780, the Academy has elected leading "thinkers and doers" from each generation, including George Washington and Benjamin Franklin in the 18th century, Daniel Webster and Ralph Waldo Emerson in the 19th, and Albert Einstein and Winston Churchill in the 20th. The current membership includes more than 250 Nobel laureates and more than 60 Pulitzer Prize winners.

The new class will be inducted at a ceremony on Oct. 6 at the Academy's headquarters in Cambridge, Mass.

Schuchard joined the university more than 40 years ago and is faculty advisor of its Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library. His most recent book The Last Minstrels: Yeats and the Revival of the Bardic Arts was published in 2008 and he is currently general editor of the eight-volume The Complete Prose of T. S. Eliot to be published by the Johns Hopkins University Press and Faber & Faber.
