Benoît Mandelbrot (left) of IBM and Yale joined other APS Fellows at a reception at the Princeton Club in New York City on November 30. The members of his set included Norton Lang of IBM (center) and Brian Schwartz of the City University of New York (right). In the background is Donald Monroe. In addition to enjoying refreshments and the festive ambience of the Princeton Club, which was decked out for the holiday season, the assembled group of about 80 Fellows heard from APS President-elect (now President) John Hopfield of Princeton, Editor-in-Chief Martin Blume, Treasurer Thomas McIlrath, Director of Education Ted Hodapp, Director of International Affairs Amy Flatten, and Director of Public Affairs Michael Lubell.
