The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, which you might be surprised to learn has its headquarters in Chicago, announced its 2004 list of MacArthur Fellows who will each receive a "genius grant" of $500,000 over the next 5 years. There are two Chicago residents in this year's list: author Aleksandar Hemon and ragtime composer Reginald R. Robinson.
