Biography | show moreshow less
Schweitzer (1875-1965) based his personal philosophy on a "reverence for life" and on a deep commitment to serve humanity through thought and action. For his many years of humanitarian efforts, Schweitzer was awarded the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize. In 1904, Schweitzer was inspired to become a medical missionary after reading an evangelical paper regarding the needs of medical missions. He studied medicine from 1905 to 1913 at the University of Strasbourg. He also raised money to establish a hospital at Lambaréné in French Equatorial Africa (today, Gabon), which he founded there in 1913. Schweitzer used his $33,000 Nobel Prize to expand the hospital and to build a leper colony.
