Quotes

Scott, who taught in Duke's history department from 1961 until 1991, was selected for "pioneering the study of southern women. Through groundbreaking research spanning ideology, race, and class, Dr. Scott's uncharted exploration into the lives of southern women has established women's history as vital to our understanding of the American South."
...intensely curious -- always eager to hear the views and ideas of others -- and a masterful storyteller," stated an obituary released by his son. "A highly esteemed public intellectual, for years a frequent commentator on national television, he has been widely considered one of the most creative intellectual leaders of our times."
He went on to explain why he felt this closeness: "Over the years, I have tried to understand the character of the engineering profession and, in a limited way, broaden its horizons by helping it to see the central role and daunting responsibilities that it has in the modern world. Engineers lament that they are not appreciated. They do not need the appreciation of others so muchmuch as they need secure self-esteem. This would come, I believe, if they accepted the messy complexity and moral dimensions of their calling."
"Mauri Osheroff's career is an inspiration to all those called to public service,” said SEC Chair Mary Jo White.  “For nearly four decades, Mauri has worked tirelessly on behalf of American investors and I am deeply grateful for her efforts and expertise."
