In a previous newsletter we noted the passing of Douglass North, former CASBS fellow (1987-88) and 1993 Nobel Prize winner in economics. Remembrances that followed included a tribute in the Washington Post by CASBS director Margaret Levi and former fellow Barry Weingast (1993-94).

We are so pleased to report that North honored CASBS with a bequest. We seek to augment it and, in return, honor him by endowing a study in his name. Click
HERE for information on making a gift in memory of Douglass North.
Now nearly 150 of YOU – members of the CASBS community – have donated to the Robert A. Scott Lectureship Fund. We are proud to acknowledge the donors here.

  In Memoriam  
Read here about members of the CASBS family who we've lost recently.
On his first day on the hill in September, fellow Paul Jargowsky was blown away by the rich intellectual history contained in his study  #16  and felt compelled to Tweet about it. We love it! Recognize any names he invokes? We're thrilled that Paul continues the tradition and will add still more richness to the CASBS story. 
Talk about tradition! Each CASBS study displays a "Ghosts in the Study" report outside its door, listing information about fellows who inhabited that study since CASBS's launch in 1954.

Above left photo, CASBS study #52: This year it's occupied by fellow Dare Baldwin (left, pointing to her own name). On Sept. 15 she hosted her former PhD advisor Ellen Markman, a renowned Stanford professor of psychology and senior associate dean for the social sciences. Markman was a CASBS fellow and inhabited the same study in 1982-83, and is shown pointing to her own name in #52's Ghosts in the Study report!

Above right photo, CASBS study #14: This year it's occupied by fellow Jonathan Jansen (right, pointing to his own name). On Oct. 19 he hosted his former PhD advisor Francisco Ramirez, also a renowned professor at Stanford's Graduate School of Education. Ramirez was a CASBS fellow and inhabited the same study in 2006-07, and is shown pointing to his own name in #14's Ghosts in the Study report!
