Among the ten honorary degree recipients were Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor LAW '79, FedEx founder Frederick Smith '66, and American composer John Adams. Not listed in the program was an honorary doctorate of humane letters presented to a surprised Richard C. Levin, who retires after twenty years as Yale's President.
