Also honored were Oscar Arias S'anchez, Costa Rica's President, who later gave the commencement address; John Kenneth Galbraith, the economist; David Harold Blackwell, a mathematician-statistician; Sir Ronald Syme, a historian; Vera Cooper Rubin, an astronomer; Sir Richard Doll, an epidemiologist; and Jessye Norman, the operatic soprano. The Monitor's editor last month was also given honorary degrees by Smith College (her alma mater) and Babson College, both in Massachusetts.
