Bernstein. The ceremony itself saw honorary degrees awarded several important individuals, including George Wells Beadle, President of the University of Chicago; Howard Hotelling and Leonard J. Savage, economists and old friends of Wallis's; and former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, for whom Wallis and Richard Nixon had worked on the Cabinet Committee on Price Stability for Economic Growth in the 1950s.
