Gade University Professor Barry Mazur will be awarded the National Medal of Science—one of 12 honorands who will be recognized in a ceremony at the White House early this year. The medal, the nation's highest recognition for scientists and mathematicians, will be conferred by President Barack Obama. 

Mazur is a leading number theorist. For a review of his book Imagining Numbers, read “On Mathematical Imagination,” from this magazine’s archives.
