Scope and Contents

An intensive study of Nobel laureates in science with particular emphasis on their relations with co-workers. The interviews include information on their associations with Nobel prize winners and other eminent scientists who have played important roles in the discoveries for which they were awarded the prize. Each laureate was asked to describe the sequence of events leading to his discovery, and the parts played by others in this process. This project was supported by the National Science Foundation.
