Wilson.

He earned his A.B. from Dartmouth College in 1972 and his Ph.D. from Stanford in 1975. Kreps won the John Bates Clark Medal in 1989. He was awarded an honorary Ph.D. by the Université Paris-Dauphine in 2001. With colleagues Paul Milgrom and Robert B. Wilson], he was awarded the 2018 John J. Carty Award for the Advancement of Science. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences.
