1993 Beberman Award Winner: Victor Rabinowitch

Until his retirement in 2002, Dr. Rabinowitch was Senior Vice President of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. He was trained as an ecologist and earned both a master's degree and a doctorate degree from the University of Wisconsin. His doctorate is an unlikely combination of zoology and international relations. For more than 25 years, he was associated with the National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council (NAS/NRC) and its programs relating to science, technology and international development. In 1979, he was a member of the U.S. Delegation to the United Nations Conference on Science and Technology for Development. From 1970 to 1981, he held the position of Director of the Academy's Board On Science and Technology for Development, and in 1981 was appointed as Executive Director of the Office of International Affaires of the National Research Council. He served as the Director of the NAS Committee on International Security and Arms Control from 1985 to 1987. Dr. Rabinowitch was honored as the NAS Staff Member of the Year for 1982. From 1990 to 1997, Dr. Rabinowitch was a member of the Council of the United Nations University. In October 1990, he was named Vice President for Programs of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. In this capacity, he has been responsible for management of all aspects of the Foundation except investments but including program development, staff, budget and Board relations. In the past few years, Dr. Rabinowitch has been actively involved in the restructuring of the MacArthur Foundation's grant program and in the implementation of a new structure.

Congratulations Mr. Rabinowitch, the 1993 Max Beberman Distinguished Alumni Award recipient.
