Four Hoover Institution scholars have been named Helen and Peter Bing Fellows thanks to a generous gift from Hoover Overseer Peter Bing and his wife, Helen.

The Bings are long-time supporters of the Hoover Institution and Stanford University. Mr. Bing also is a Stanford University trustee.

The four Helen and Peter Bing Fellows are Senior Fellow Stephen Haber, Research Fellow Michael McFaul, and Senior Fellows Sherwin Rosen, and David Wise.

Michael McFaul is an assistant professor of political science at Stanford University and a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Moscow and a member of the Board of Directors of the Moscow Eurasia Foundation. His expertise lies in international relations, Russian politics, and political and economic reform in postcommunist countries.

Sherwin Rosen is the Edwin A. and Betty L. Bergman Distinguished Service Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Chicago. He is known for his expertise in labor economics, industrial organization, and microeconomics.

David Wise is the John F. Stambaugh Professor of Political Economy at the John F.
