He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian award, in 2003. Professor Wilson passed away in March of 2012 after battling cancer. His work helped shape the field of political science in the United States.

"Wilson has always had the gift of lucidity. ... I like the idea of Enduring Questions, as today's students seem to need the bottom line."
