James Clerk Maxwell
b. 11-13-1831; Edinburgh, Scotland
d. 8-13-1910; Cambridge

James Clerk Maxwell was a mathematician and theoretical physicist noted for his equations in electricity, magnetism and inductance; and laying the foundations for the 20th century fields of special relativity and quantum mechanics. He also made the first true color photographs.

Lise Meitner
b. 11-17-1878; Vienna
d. 10-27-1968; Cambridge

Lise Meitner was part of the team that discovered nuclear fission, an achievement for which her colleague Otto Hahn was awarded the Nobel Prize (1944). Meitner exclusion by the Nobel committee is one of the most glaring examples of women's scientific achievement overlooked.

Element 109, Meitnerium (Mt), is named in her honor.

Dmitry Ivanovich Mendeleyev
b. 2-8-1834; Siberia
d. 2-2-1907; St. Petersburg

Dmitry Ivanovich Mendeleyev was a chemist and inventor credited with the first version of the periodic table of elements where he predicted the properties of elements yet to be discovered.

Otto Fritz Meyerhof
b. 4-12-1884; Germany
d. 10-6-1951

Otto Fritz Meyerhof was a physician and biochemist who was awarded the 1922 Nobel Prize in Medicine “for his discovery of the fixed relationship between the consumption of oxygen and the metabolism of lactic acid in the muscle”. Meyerhof shared the prize with Archibald Vivian Hill.

Albert Abraham Michelson American Physicist Born in Prussia, Giclee Print

Albert Abraham Michelson
b. 12-19-1852; Prussia
d. 5-9-1931; Pasadena

Albert Abraham Michelson won the 1907 Nobel Prize in Physics for “his optical precision instruments and the spectroscopic and metrological investigations carried out with their aid”.

FYI - Michelson was raised in California where his father was a merchant in mining camps. This fact was woven into a story for the TV show Bonanza (Look to the Stars, broadcast March 18, 1962), Ben Cartwright (Lorne Greene) helps the 16-year-old Albert Abraham Michelson get into the US Naval Academy. Michelson was in fact appointed to the Academy in 1869 by President U.S. Grant, later to be an instructor at the Academy.

Jacques-Lucien Monod
b. 2-9-1910; France
d. 5-31-1976

Jacques-Lucien Monod was a biochemist who shared the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine “for their discoveries concerning genetic control of enzyme and virus synthesis” with Francois Jacob and Andre Lwoff.
