Quincy Wright's career reflected his typically American faith in the practical benefits of new knowledge, his multiple interests, and his zeal for making knowledge work to benefit humanity. These same characteristics had been reflected in the careers of his great-grandfather, Elizur Wright, and of his father, Phillip G. Wright, both professors of mathematics who made important contributions to other fields and to public policy. Quincy Wright's teaching, research, writing, civic, and professional activities were all informed by a humane, cosmopolitan, multidisciplinary, and problem-oriented perspective, in which he saw world society as his client. His spirit of reasoned optimism and sense of social responsibility were as contagious as his contribution to the study of international relations was profound.
