“Marquis Who’s Who” is generally considered to be the world’s leading professional reference vehicle in all walks of life. Out of a total human population of seven thousand million, about 55,000 top professionals appear in “Marquis Who’s Who in the World”. This means that one out of about 130,000 people appear in it. These are the world’s best in their respective fields. The British population in 2011 was 62,641,000 so only about five hundred people from the whole of Britain make it into “Marquis Who’s Who in the World” for all walks of life. AIAS is particularly distinguished in having no less than fourteen Fellows listed in “Marquis Who’s Who in the World” at present. These are as follows. An entry in an edition is assessed anew every year, and is not automatic.

1) Myron Wyn Evans, Director, listed in thirty editions as follows.
