At the beginning of Prelude to Foundation tgantor is presenting his paper on psychohistory at a convention of mathematicians held in Trantor, the capital of the Galactic Empire.

That’s a record for productivity and consistency worthy of a robot. Asimov was a long-time member and Vice President of Mensa International, albeit reluctantly; he described some members of that organization as “brain-proud and aggressive about their IQs” He took more joy in being president of the American Humanist Association.
