Oscar Handlin ranks as one of the most prolific and influential American historians of the twentieth century, with pioneering works in the fields of immigration history, ethnic history, and social history. He began his long career at Harvard University in 1939, becoming a full professor in 1954. At a time when most historians of the U.S. were wholly absorbed by the frontier thesis of Professor F. J. Turner, Dr. Handlin turned his attention to another movement westward: that of Eastern Europeans, many of them Jews, to the United States. Dr. Handlin's best known work, The Uprooted, for which he received the Pulitzer Prize, is to some extent autobiographical. His many other books include The American People in the Twentieth Century; Race and Nationality in American Life; and Boston's Immigrants, 1790-1880. He was a member of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences; the Massachusetts Historical Society; the Colonial Society of Massachusetts; and the American Jewish Historical Society. Oscar Handlin died on September 20, 2011, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, at age 97.

Robert Mason Hauser became the American Philosophical Society’s new Executive Officer on June 12, 2017. He was born in Chicago and is a graduate of The University of Chicago and The University of Michigan. Among his mentors were two members of the APS, Otis Dudley Duncan and William Hamilton Sewell, Jr. Dr. Hauser is one of the preeminent quantitative sociologists of his generation. After two years at Brown University, he had a career of more than forty years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He has made fundamental contributions to the study of social stratification in advanced industrial societies. Building on the work of Peter Blau and Otis Dudley Duncan, Dr. Hauser developed a model of intergenerational status attainment to challenge the idea that inequality stemmed primarily from differential rewards to human capital in the market. He has written more than 120 scientific papers. His two classic books with David Featherman showed that much of the inequality observed in the market originated in pre-market processes rooted in the family, which led to the intergenerational transmission of social status. His analytic framework, which became known as "the Wisconsin model," dominated sociological research on stratification for an entire generation. From 1968 onward, Dr. Hauser directed the Wisconsin Longitudinal Study, a multi-disciplinary study of the life course and aging among more than 10,000 Wisconsin high school graduates of 1957. The sixth round of the study went into the field in 2011, and the WLS has become a major resource for investigators in the U.S. and other nations. His research has been supported by the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Hauser has variously served as Samuel Stouffer Professor, Hilldale Professor, and Vilas Research Professor of Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. At the UW-Madison, Dr. Hauser has directed the Center for Demography and Ecology, the Institute for Research on Poverty, and the Center for the Demography of Health and Aging. He has held fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, and the Russell Sage Foundation and visiting professorships at the University of Bergen and Peking University. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences (1984) and the National Academy of Sciences (1984) and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Statistical Association, National Academy of Education, American Educational Research Association, the Gerontological Association of America, and the American Academy of Political and Social Science. He has mentored more than 50 doctoral students, and in 2002 he won the award of the American Sociological Association for distinguished contributions to teaching. In 2011, that association named its award for research in social stratification for Dr. Hauser. In 2017 Dr. Hauser completed a six-year term as the Executive Director of the Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education at the National Academies. He was elected a member of the American Philosophical Society in 2005.
