French Institute Confers Coveted Honor on Dr. Yigael Yadin of Israel

The Institute of France, the highest body of learning in this country, has elected Dr. Yigael Yadin, professor of archaeology at the Hebrew University, as a corresponding member. This is the first time that an Israeli has been granted this much-coveted honor.

The Institute elected Dr. Yadin as a tribute to his “work in the field of archaeology and as a sign of admiration for the State of Israel.”
