Alfred Nobel

Nobel Prize/ Fund


A student is asking his teacher, Professor Smith, some questions about Alfred Nobel. Professor Smith in our textbook, there are so many Nobel Prize winners. I wonder where the money is from. Why Nobel Prize, do you know? The founder of the Nobel Fund is Alfred Nobel, you see? You mean the money is from Nobel Fund? Right. Alfred Nobel was a Swedish inventor and industrialist. He had never been to school or university, but later he became a skillful chemist and an excellent linguist. I admire him a lot. Then he must be wealthy. You see, Nobel Prize is a large sum. It's true. Alfred Nobel was not merely an inventor.
