PAULING (1901-1994) was the only winner of two unshared Nobel Prizes.
He won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1954 for his research on the
nature of the chemical bond holding molecules together and its use in
understanding the structure of complex substances such as protein and
antibodies. After the development of the atomic bomb, Pauling campaigned against
nuclear weapons. He won the 1962 Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts.
WILLIAM B. SHOCKLEY (1910-1989), John Bardeen and Walter Brattain were
awarded the 1956 Nobel Prize for Physics "for their researches on
semiconductors and their discovery of the transistor effect" while at Bell
Laboratories. Shockley, a London-born American physicist, was equally famous
for two statements. Based on his research, he had publicly proclaimed that
Blacks were "genetically inferior", and he had proposed creating a sperm bank in
which sperm from Nobel Laureates would be preserved to inseminate intelligent
women to create exceptionally bright children. Nuclear chemist GLENN THEODORE
SEABORG (1912-1999) and Edwin M. McMillan won the 1951 Nobel Prize in
Chemistry "for their discoveries in the chemistry of the transuranium
elements". Seaborg is best known for his work in the synthetic
transuranium elements. He was responsible for the discovery of ten
elements: americium, curium, berkelium, californium, einsteinium, fermium,
mendelevium, nobelium, plutonium and seaborgium. When "seaborgium" was
officially accepted as the name for element 106 in August 1997, it marked the
first time an element had ever been named for a living person. Slightly
rippled. Fine condition.
