Alfred Bernhard Nobel: sir, you will be remembered as a Swedish chemist, engineer, innovator, and armaments manufacturer. You were the inventor of dynamite. You also owned Bofors, which you had redirected from its previous role as primarily an iron and steel producer to a major manufacturer of cannon and other armaments. You held 350 different patents, dynamite being the most famous. You used your fortune posthumously to institute the Nobel Prizes. The synthetic element nobelium was named after you. Your name also survives in modern-day companies such as Dynamit Nobel and Akzo Nobel, which are descendants of or mergers with companies Nobel yourself established. You were elected a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in 1884, the same institution that would later select laureates for two of the Nobel prizes, and you received an honorary doctorate from Uppsala University in 1893. In your one-page testament, you stipulated that the money go to discoveries or inventions in the physical sciences and to discoveries or improvements in chemistry. You had opened the door to technological awards, but had not left instructions on how to deal with the distinction between science and technology. Since the deciding bodies you had chosen were more concerned with the former, the prizes went to scientists more often than engineers, technicians or other inventors. In 2001, your great-grandnephew, Peter Nobel (b. 1931), asked the Bank of Sweden to differentiate its award to economists given "in Alfred Nobel's memory" from the five other awards. This request added to the controversy over whether the Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel is actually a "Nobel Prize" Alfred Nobel: The man who is considered to be founder of the Nobel Prize and Inventor of dynamite, happy 180th birthday!
