Krueger named fellow of academy

Professor Alan Krueger has been selected as a fellow of the American Academy of Political and Social Science.

The academy was founded in 1889, and began publishing The Annals in 1890. In 2000, the academy established the fellows program to recognize and honor individual social scientists for their distinguished scholarship in the social sciences and efforts to communicate that scholarship to an audience beyond their own discipline.

Krueger, the Lynn Bendheim Thoman, Class of 1976, and Robert Bendheim, Class of 1937, Professor in Economics and Public Policy, has been a Princeton faculty member since 1987. His primary research and teaching interests are labor economics, education, industrial relations and social insurance. Since March 2000, he has written a monthly column on economics for The New York Times.

Each fellow is designated to a position named after a distinguished scholar or public servant who has published in The Annals over the past century. Krueger was named the Theodore Roosevelt Fellow. Princeton Provost Amy Gutmann was named the W.E.B. Dubois Fellow in 2002.
