Schwartz Visiting Fellows

The Schwartz Visiting Fellowship brings the world to our doorstep.

Since 1989, world-renowned experts in their fields have visited Pomfret School under the auspices of the Schwartz Visiting Fellow program. This extraordinary speaker series is the result of the vision and generosity of Michael ’66 and Eric ’69 Schwartz. Past fellows include the writer Joyce Carol Oates, marine archaeologist Robert Ballard, author Bill Bryson, human rights activist Madame Jehan Sadat, and historian David McCullough, to name a few. These eminent visiting fellows have enriched both the School and the Pomfret community. We extend our profound gratitude to Michael and Eric.
