  43. 43. Those within the academy become 
 very skilled at judging the stuff of reputations. Where has the person’s work been published, what claims of priority in discovery have
 they established, how often have 
 they been cited, how 
 and where reviewed, what prizes won, 
 what institutional ties earned, what organizations led?
