The Inventor

Historical Description[]

As an adolescent, Alfred Bernhard Nobel demonstrated an aptitude for chemistry and language. His skills developed further as he mastered six languages and filed his first patent for his invention of the gas meter by the age of 24. In 1850 he traveled to Paris and met Ascanio Sobrero, who invented nitroglycerin three years prior. At the time, nitroglycerin was highly unstable, but Nobel was determined to control the substance. In 1867, 20 years after the discovery of nitroglycerin, Alfred Nobel patented a new explosive, one thousand times more powerful than black powder. This invention, called Dynamite, was safer to handle and more stable than nitroglycerin, and became the main tool used for building tunnels, canals, roads and many other construction projects.

In 1888, Alfred's brother Ludvig died, and several newspapers published obituaries of Alfred due to miscommunication. These newspapers referred to Alfred as 'The merchant of death' and a man 'who became rich by finding ways to kill more people faster than ever'. Disgusted by the way the world would view his discoveries, he decided that he would leave the majority of his wealth to the betterment of humankind, and thus established the Nobel Prizes.

Alfred Nobel signed his last will and testament in Paris on November 27, 1895. He specified that the bulk of his fortune should be divided into five parts and to be used for prizes in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature and peace to 'those who, during the preceding year, shall have conferred the greatest benefit to humankind.' Nobel died a year later, on December 10th, 1896.
