Flag Day Naturalization Ceremony Honoring Jeff Bezos

Smithsonian Secretary David J. Skorton presents Amazon founder Jeff Bezos with the James Smithson Bicentennial Medal in recognition of his achievements at the Special Naturalization Ceremony held in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. on June 14, 2016.

 

The citation on the medal says: For his embodiment of American creativity through new uses of the internet; for envisioning the future, on earth and in space; for transforming the consumer experience and the speed of business; for valuing entrepreneurship, innovation and freedom. Through the expression of these values and achievements he has contributed to the fulfillment of James Smithson’s vision for the “increase and diffusion of knowledge.”
