Usama al-Khalidi was an Arab scientist, artist, poet, and astronomer who dedicated his life to teaching a new generation to think outside the box


In his memory, his family and friends have set up this website to collect facts, stories and photographs of an extraordinary man, and provide information about the recently established "Usama al-Khalidi Endowed Award" at the American University of Beirut (AUB) to recognise students who exemplify his spirit.
