Robert Adams was an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of California at San Diego at the time of his death on January 27, 2018, at age 91. He was also Director Emeritus of the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago and Secretary Emeritus of the Smithsonian Institution. Educated at the University of Chicago, he had a long-standing interest in the environmental, agricultural and urban history of the Middle East. Dr. Adams' conducted extensive field research from the mid-1950s through the late 1970s in southern Iraq, southwestern Iran, Syria and Saudi Arabia. This work, on which he has published extensively, sought to identify long-term patterns of change extending over the last six millennia. Another field of research interest and publication involves the contexts and history of technological change, concentrating on the last five centuries or so in western Europe and the United States. In 1996 he wrote Paths of Fire: An Anthropologist's Inquiry Into Western Technology, which deals with how technology comes about and why or why not it has an impact on mankind. Dr. Adams served as Editor of Trends in American and German Higher Education (2002), which stems from his involvement in a comparison of graduate education and research in the United States and Germany. Robert Adams was the recipient of the 1996 Distinguished Service Award from the Society for American Archaeology, the 2000 Lucy Wharton Drexel Medal from the University of Pennsylvania Museum, the 2002 Gold Medal from the American Institute of Archaeology, and the 2003 Field Museum Award of Merit. He was a member of the National Academy of Sciences and was elected to the American Philosophical Society in 1974.

Arlin M. Adams was a Court of Appeals Judge, having served from 1969 to 1987. He was of counsel at one of Philadelphia's largest law firms, Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis, where he spent a significant amount of time on issues of public interest. Judge Adams earned his undergraduate degree from Temple University. He received his J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, serving as Editor-in-Chief of Penn Law Review. Later, he served on the school's faculty. Prior to his appointment to the Federal bench by President Richard M. Nixon, Judge Adams had a long history of public service, including a term as Secretary of Public Welfare of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania from 1963 to 1966. He was also the author of books and many articles on law and religion, including (with C. Emmerich and W. Burger) Nation Dedicated to Religious Liberty: The Constitutional Heritage of the Religious Clauses (1990) and (with W. Miller and M. Marty) Religion and the Public Good: A Bicentennial Forum (1989). Judge Adams was President of the American Judicature Society and chairman of the U.S. Supreme Court Fellows. In 1997 he received the Philadelphia Award, the highest award for civic service in the Delaware Valley. In addition to his having received numerous honorary degrees, the University of Pennsylvania Law School and Drexel University created professorships in his name in 2005 and 2007, respectively, and in 2001, Susquehanna University named a law center in his honor. Judge Adams served as trustee for numerous boards, including the University of Pennsylvania, Bryn Mawr College, Einstein Medical Center, the Philadelphia Diagnostic Center, and the National Constitution Center. Arlin Adams was elected to the American Philosophical Society in 1979 and served as its President from 1993 to 1999. He died December 22, 2015, at the age of 94 in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania.

Born in Germany in 1930, Julius Adler received his A.B. from Harvard University in 1952 and his Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin with Henry Lardy in 1957. Subsequently he did postdoctoral studies with Arthur Kornberg at Washington University (1957-59) and with Dale Kaiser at Stanford University (1959-60). In 1960 he became assistant professor in the Departments of Biochemistry and Genetics at the University of Wisconsin. He became professor of biochemistry and genetics in 1966 and Edwin Bret Hart Professor in 1972 and is presently emeritus professor of biochemistry and genetics at Wisconsin. Dr. Adler is known for discovering the mechanism of bacterial chemotaxis, the swimming of Escherichia coli towards higher concentration of some compounds and away from others. He discovered its chemoreceptors, which are methylatable proteins. Dr. Adler and his students studied the structure of the bacterial flagellum and its basal body and found the membrane potential to be the source of energy for motility. He and his group discovered the proteins that mediate between the receptors and the flagella by isolating mutants lacking each of them. Dr. Adler has continued to study the basis for response to conflicting stimuli and is presently conducting research on sensory reception and decision making in Drosophila fruit flies. Adler is the recipient of the Selman A. Waksman Award in Microbiology from the National Academy of Sciences and was awarded the Otto Warburg Medal by the German Society for Biological Chemistry in 1986. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts & Sciences.

Peter Agre is a physician-scientist who has spent the last two decades studying the proteins of red blood cells, including those of the red cell membrane that determine blood type. Along with other workers in Paris and England, he solved the old puzzle of whether the Rh blood type is determined by one gene or by two or more closely linked genes. He isolated a novel protein of the red cell membrane that proved to be the specific protein for a channel involved in transfer of water across the cell membrane. He found that this channel, which he called aquaporin-1, is present in many other types of cells, such as the kidney and lung, where he could show physiologic significance. Furthermore, he showed that the previously known Colton blood type was determined by variation in the aquaporin-1 protein. He found that aquaporin-1 is the archetypic member of a family of cell membrane proteins. In 2003 Dr. Agre was awarded the Nobel Prize for these discoveries. He has been Professor of Biological Chemistry and Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine since 1993. In February 2009 he became president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
