Three Harvardians among Time’s 100
Three Harvard affiliates have been listed on Time magazine's annual inventory of the world's 100 most influential people.
Time magazine's annual "Time 100" issue, which lists 100 people "who most affect the world" includes three Harvard faculty members. One is Gottlieb professor of law Elizabeth Warren, who chairs the Congressional Oversight Panel investigating the $700-billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) created to bail out the financial industry. She has argued the case for regulation to make consumer credit safer. A second is associate professor of surgery Atul Gawande, profiled in Harvard Magazine as "The Unlikely Writer." A third is 1998 Nobel Laureate (economics) Amartya Sen, Lamont University Professor. All three were placed in the "Thinkers" category (the other groups were Leaders, Heroes, and Artists).
In addition, two alumni, Carlton Cuse ’81, producer of the television series Lost, and comic and talk-show host Conan O'Brien ’85, made the list under "Artists." U.S. President Barack Obama, J.D. ’91, appeared among the "Leaders."
