Israeli theoretical physicist, who worked independently of Gell-Mann but almost simultaneously (1961) devised a method of grouping baryons in such a way that they fell into logical families.
It became the most prestigious award for mathematicians, often referred to as the equivalent of a Nobel Prize for mathematicians.
As a professor at the University of Toronto, he had worked to bring the International Congress of Mathematicians to Toronto (1924).

Physics can progress without the proofs, but we can't go on without the facts ...
The Congress was so successful that afterward there was a surplus of about $2,500 which Fields, as chairman of the organizing committee, proposed be used to fund two medals to be awarded at each of future Congresses. He died the following year, leaving $47,000 as additional funding for the medals, which have been awarded since 1936.« English chemist who prepared furfurine and benzoline (1845), the first examples of vegeto-alkali or organic salt-bases, as they were known then. Fownes was the first winner of the one hundred guineas (£105) Actonian Prize from the Royal Institution for his essay, Chemistry as Exemplifies the Wisdom and Beneficence of God.
He published this essay, which dealt with animal and plant chemistry, in 1844.

Robert Bruce Merrifield was an American biochemist who received the 1984 Nobel Prize for Chemistry for his development of the solid phase peptide synthesis method to build up large organic molecules on a solid matrix.
He first attached an amino acid to small plastic polymer spheres, then added other amino acids, one after another, until a polypeptide chain was built up. Chains of amino acids can thus be built in any predetermined order to synthesize a wide variety of proteins, hormones, and other organic molecules.
if the facts are right, then the proofs are a matter of playing around with the algebra correctly.

Most of his life was then spent at Oxford, England.
