NOBEL PRIZES

by Kathy Wolfe Most everyone has heard of the Nobel Prizes, but how much do you know about their origin and the winners? Tidbits brings you a history of the Prizes and a sampling of a few winners. • A Swedish inventor and businessman was the foundation for the five categories of Nobel Prizes awarded each year. Alfred Nobel, born in Stockholm in 1833, was 30 years old when he was working on developing nitroglycerine as an explosive for the mining industry. Unfortunately, Nobel’s own brother was killed in an explosion during their experiments. In 1864, Nobel was able to start mass-producing nitroglycerine, meanwhile experimenting with mixing nitro with a fine sand to make a paste to shape into rods that could be inserted into drilling holes. In 1866, he received a patent for his new invention which he called “dynamite.” This was closely followed by the invention of a detonator in order to set off the dynamite by lighting a fuse. His innovation was so successful, Nobel set up 90 factories in more than 20 countries. • Nobel never married, living much of his life as a very wealthy recluse prone to depression. By the time he died at age 63, he had 355 patents. • Alfred Nobel’s will designated 94% of his vast fortune toward establishing five Nobel Prizes in Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Literature, and Peace to those who, “during the preceding year, shall have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind.” His relatives vehemently contested Turn the page for more!

Horoscope

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Accept what you can’t change. There is a focus on sharing with others and abiding with their decisions. If you’re under a deadline at work in the week ahead, don’t blow it off or be casual about fulfilling commitments. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Do unto others. Exerting some warmth and kindness will thaw even the chilliest situation in the upcoming week. Have faith that a nagging financial problem can be solved and you’ll quickly see the simplest solution. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Do your part and take part. Think about the great things you can contribute to the community. You don’t need to wait for an invitation to participate in something satisfying. Put your people skills to good use this week. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’re too generous for your own good. If you’re approached by someone with an offer or proposal, it might do more to enrich the other person than you. Don’t fritter away your financial security; hang tough in the week to come. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): There’s an old saying: “Only he who has traveled the road knows where the holes are deep.” Remain respectful of the experiences of others in the week ahead. Though you may be ready to leap into action, don’t ignore sound advice. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The Full Moon in your sign today could kick off a week in which you reap the benefits of partnership. As they say, it’s often who you know rather than what you know that can make a huge difference to your success. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The glowing embers of romantic desire can be fanned into warm, invigorating flames in the week ahead. You could get a nod of approval when you approach others with sales ideas or business deals. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Roll up your sleeves and wear your heart proudly. A straightforward approach works best. Don’t fret about making commitments, as you have the tools needed in the week to come. Light a fire under a romantic idea. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t throw good money after bad. Watch out for a tendency to spend money too freely this week. You should be able to make a persuasive proposal and get people to cooperate or support your aims. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Like mold, the longer you ignore a problem, the more quickly it grows. During the week ahead, don’t shrug off repeated reminders about serious responsibilities or take it for granted that someone else will do the job. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Do your homework. Develop plans for improvements, but don’t be in a rush to implement them. Conflicts that may hold you back in the upcoming week will evaporate quickly without a need for a confrontation. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your love light must remain on low until you accomplish other objectives in the week ahead. Keep a firm grip on achieving your goals once the work week begins. Play romantic music this evening.

Although he has never won the Nobel Peace Prize, 23-year-old Gregory Smith has already been nominated four times, the first time at age 12. Smith is the founder of International Youth Adcovates, an organization that “promotes principles of peace and understanding among your people throughout the world.” He has met with world leaders, Nobel Laureates, and has spoken in front of the United Nations.

THERE is nothing funnier than a dumb criminal. Nothing. Don’t believe us? Consider the recent story of Mario and Domingo, a pair of robbers who threatened to shoot a restaurant owner if he didn’t give them free food. The owner told the two men he was too busy for a robbery, and asked them to come back in an hour. So they did. Unsurprisingly, they ended up in handcuffs. Funny, right? With that in mind, we have compiled a list of 10 absurdly stupid law-breakers for your shameless amusement. There’s a famished banana brandisher, a crazy brave suburban lumberjack and an Amish kid who likes to run stop signs in a horse-drawn carriage. Have a read of our top 10. Just be warned: it would be a crime not to laugh. 1. SLIGHTLY ARMED ‘BATTERY’ The term “outgunned” doesn’t quite do this story justice. Derrick strolled into a discount gun store with a baseball bat, smashed a glass display case and tried to steal a firearm. Yes, he tried to rob a gun shop with a baseball bat. What happened next? The manager pulled out a gun of his own, pointed it at Derrick and kept him in the crosshairs until the police arrived. Don’t be too hard on yourself Derrick. Guns in a gun store? Nobody could have anticipated that. 2. IT’S RAINING IDIOTIC MEN Stupidity in motion. That’s the only way to describe this clip of one wannabe criminal’s botched robbery. Confronted by a locked door, he tries to scale the liquor store’s outside wall, and falls on his backside. Then he tries to drop gracefully into the shop from above, and falls on his backside. After assembling some stolen goods and failing to open the front door from the inside, the burglar tries to jump back through the hole he made in the ceiling, and falls on his backside. Eventually the poor guy just gives up, sits down for a smoke by the door and waits for the cops to show up. 3. WAITRESS HANDED HER OWN STOLEN ID A customer at Applebee’s, an American restaurant,

Never, never be afriad to do what`s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society`s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.

handed a waitress her own stolen driver’s license in an attempt to order alcohol. The culprit was a 26-year-old woman, so she didn’t need to use a fake ID to buy her margarita anyway, but we’ll set that aside. Kudos to the waitress, who remained calm, told the customer she was off to get her drink and called the police instead. 4. LOUD GETAWAY DONKEY FOILS ROBBERY Getaway cars are just for the movies. Real criminals use getaway donkeys. A trio of Columbian robbers in the exotic sounding town Juan de Acosta loaded stolen rum, rice, tuna and sardines onto Xavi, a 10-year-old donkey. It was all going to plan, but then the donkey starting “heehawing”. Loudly. The racket alerted police to the robbery and the burglars ran. 5. AMATEUR LUMBERJACK A would-be lumberjack was casually strolling down a suburban street with an axe in hand when he happened across a bike, which was chained around a tree. The axeman wanted to acquire this bike for himself. So he started to chop down the tree, blissfully oblivious to the stares of passers-by. The bemused spectators chased him away several times, but the lumberjack was determined. After a period of about seven minutes, he managed to fell the tree. Unfortunately, the thief was chased away again before he could claim his prize. 6. SLOW REASONING Levi, a 17-year-old Amish youth, ran a stop sign in his “horse and buggy”. We believe it was the latest model. Young Levi then led police on a mile-long, low speed chase before taking a turn too sharply and tipping the carriage on its side. Hollywood could probably make a movie out of the incident, called The Slow and The Furious. Yes, we know what you’re thinking. With a terrible joke like that, “who’s the real criminal here?” Anyway, Levi was charged with “over-driving an animal”, among other offences. Serves him right. What a hoon. 7. MARKS OFF Joey and Matthew concocted an ingenious disguise before trying to break into an apartment. Well,

we use the term “ingenious” very loosely. Matthew and Joey spurned more traditional disguises like masks or balaclavas, instead choosing to draw on their own faces with permanent markers. Here’s the thing about permanent marker. It’s extremely difficult to erase. So when the pair was pulled over by police after the bungled break-in, they were easily recognisable. The stunt earned Joey and Matthew the nickname “dumb and dumber”. 8. MAN DEMANDS SEX REFUND FROM TEEN’S FATHER A man in Stockholm, Sweden was a bit miffed when the 13-year-old girl he’d been courting didn’t show up for an arranged sex meeting. Having met the girl on a dating website, this man deposited an advance payment of 500 kronor, or about 85 Australian dollars, in her bank account before their “date”. When the teen stood him up, the man found her home phone number and called her father to demand a refund. You can imagine how that ended. 9. SIR, DROP THE BANANA John, a 17-year-old from the US state of North Carolina, entered an internet cafe and demanded money, claiming he had a gun hidden under his shirt. The “gun” was actually a banana. The cafe’s owner, along with a customer, restrained John and called the police. John ate the banana while he waited for the cops to arrive. Apparently the police joked about charging the kid with “destroying evidence”. 10. POLICE ARE NOT NOCTURNAL James’s first mistake was to try to break into his own mother’s house. Young James had a go at climbing through the first floor window, then bolted when he was caught. It didn’t help that he conducted the botched raid in broad daylight, but let’s set that aside for a moment, because this story gets much dumber. When police found James hiding in a crawl space near the scene and arrested him, the young man was stunned. James thought he couldn’t be arrested for burglary because it wasn’t night-time.

Chai – 1 year old m a l e L i l a c P o i n t Siamese Chai is such a handsome Lilac point Siamese, we are amazed he has not been scooped up yet! He has an equally gorgeous personality, as he is gentle and loving, easygoing and really enjoys a good belly rub. He just looks like the softest stuffy ever, with that velvety fur and squinty happy eyes. You MUST meet him.

Chief – 3 year old male fluffy domestic cat This big fluffy loverboy is SUCH a sweetie that we know as soon as you meet him you will want him to be part of your family. Within minutes he will be flipping a kitty somersault to get a good belly rub. Chief is a large, very affectionate ball of soft fur and love, just waiting for his forever home so he can settle into the good life!

Obie1 year old male black beauty We have discovered Obie is one big softie. He is a year old shiny black cat with a lovely, mellow personality, very friendly but not overwhelmingly needy! Black cats in general seem to be very hard to adopt out, but if you take one home you will discover very quickly that they are the most loyal and affectionate of feline friends.

Loki - 1-2 year old neutered German Shepherd Loki is full of life and ready to learn. He would benefit from a family that can continue on with teaching this firecracker his manners while also being able to drain this gogetter of his energy. Loki is a highly motivated dog and we know this will lead to nothing to success for this cutie-pie. Loki loves to play and run to expend energy, so would be well suited to an active family. He takes a while to warm up to certain males but once forming that relationship he excels. Loki would do best with a female K-9 friend and a home without cats.

Skeeter – 2 year old neutered male Redbone Coonhound We think Skeeter would make an excellent companion and family pet. Coonhounds love to be with their owners and family, and are happy just doing things with their humans, or sitting nearby, watching them. Skeeter has a sleek red coat and the long floppy ears characteristic of his breed. The Redbone is an extremely vocal dog, as would be expected of a hound. The breed is known for its distinctive “drawling” bark, also known as a “bay,” and we can vouch for the fact that Skeeter knows how to bay with the best of them. He is high energy and full of enthusiasm, just waiting for a loving family to make his own.

Mayzie - 5 month old Shepherd Terrier cross This little girl has shown great patience and an understanding since she arrived. She will need a patient, loving family that can provide her with comfort, happy moments and training. She needs to feel proud of herself so she can walk that much taller with some life skills in her pocket. Mayzie is still tender and shy right now, but has been slowly coming out of her shell. She is absorbing life’s lessons like a sponge. Sadly this girl had never really experienced life indoors before coming to the shelter, and is now learning the comforts that come from having a soft place to land and lots of love. She would love a family that will include her in their life inside and outside! Mayzie is truly a sweetie.

TRYING TO WIN A NOBEL PRIZE A man is driving down a country road, when he spots a farmer standing in the middle of a huge field of grass. He pulls the car over to the side of the road and notices that the farmer is just standing there, doing nothing, looking at nothing. The man gets out of the car, walks all the way out to the farmer and asks him, “Ah excuse me mister, but what are you doing?” The farmer replies, “I’m trying to win a Nobel Prize.” “How?” asks the man, puzzled. “Well, I heard they give the Nobel Prize . . . to people who are out standing in their field.”

with the chemistry of radioactive substances, discovering the concept of radioactive halflife and alpha and beta radiation. Yet his most famous work was performed nine years after his prize, when he became the first to split the atom in a nuclear reaction. The chemical element rutherfordium (Element 104) is named after him. Fourteen of Rutherford’s students went on to become Nobel Prize winners themselves. • Albert Einstein was responsible for “the world’s most famous equation,” E=mc2, the formula for mass-energy equivalence. But that wasn’t the work for which he received his Nobel Prize in Physics. In 1921, this genius took the prize for discovering the cause of the photoelectric effect. • Following a vacation at his country home, Scottish biologist Alexander Fleming returned to his lab to find a fungus had developed in a stack of Petri dishes that contained a staphylococcus culture. The bacteria had died all around the area containing the mold, prompting him to perform experiments over the next 20 years showing that the mold prevented growth of staphylococci, even when diluted 800 times. Fleming named his “mold juice” penicillin, and it was produced as an antibiotic that could cure numerous serious infectious diseases. For his work in the field of Medicine, Fleming was awarded the 1945 Nobel Prize. • The “first person in the Western world to have shown us that a struggle can be waged without violence” was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. At 33, Martin Luther King, Jr. became the youngest person to receive this honor for his work in America’s civil rights movement. King donated the prize money to the movement. • In the field of Literature, you’ll most likely recognize the names of Rudyard Kipling (1907), George Bernard Shaw (1925), Eugene O’Neill (1936), Pearl S. Buck (1938), Ernest Hemingway (1954), and John Steinbeck (1962). Although British statesman Sir Winston Churchill would normally be thought of as a candidate in the area of peace, he was actually awarded the Literature prize in 1953 for his works The Second World War and A History of the English Speaking Peoples. • Since 1901, more than 860 Nobel Prizes have been awarded. Of that number only 44 have been awarded to women, including the 1979 Peace Prize given to Mother Teresa. This Albanian nun, born Anjeze Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, founded the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta, India, in 1950, and spent 45 years caring for the poor, sick, orphaned, and dying. • American pathologist Francis Peyton Rous discovered a carcinogenic virus in 1911, observing that a malignant tumor could be transferred via a virus. His work was widely discredited by experts at the time, and it was not until 1966 that his work was deemed worthy of a Nobel Prize. Rous was 87 years old when he accepted his long-delayed award, and continued working until his death at age 91. • French surgeon Alexis Carrel received the 1912 Nobel Prize in Medicine as a pioneer in blood vessel suturing. Twenty years later he teamed up with famed pilot Charles Lindbergh to invent a “perfusion pump,” a device that allowed living organs to exist outside of the body during surgery, opening the door to the development of open heart surgery, organ transplants, and the 123.456.7890 123 Fish Street, City Prov. artificial heart.

FAMOUS CANADIANS: NOBEL PRIZE WINNERS

In keeping with our theme of Nobel Prizes this week, Tidbits focuses on a few of the many Canadians who have been awarded various prizes. • There were no Canadian-born Chemistry prize winners until 1983, when Henry Taube became the first chemist to receive the award for his “work in the mechanisms of electron transfer reactions.” Since that time, Canadians have been awarded the Chemistry prize in 1986, 1992, and 1993. • The career of Alice Munro has stretched over 45 years and in 2013, the 82-year-old Ontario author was finally rewarded for her efforts with the Nobel Prize in Literature, only the 13th woman to win the Literature prize since it was founded in 1902. Quebec-born Saul Bellow won in Literature in 1976, but because he moved to Chicago as a young child, he is considered an American writer, so Munro is largely deemed to be the first Canadian to win. Her first collection of stories wasn’t published until she was 37 years old. • Nova Scotia native Charles Brenton Huggins was a pioneer in cancer research, discovering that hormones could be used to control the spread of some cancers. His research demonstrated that cancer growth was dependent on specific hormones and that by removing the source of those

hormones, significant reversal resulted, a discovery that gave tremendous hope to those with prostate and breast cancer. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1966. • Since the Nobel Prize in Economics was instituted in 1969, Canadians have taken this award three times, in 1996, 1997, and 1999. • Diabetics across the world can be grateful for the tremendous research of Sir Frederick Grant Banting and John James Rickard Macleod. Banting was a scientist, doctor, and painter who was the primary discoverer of insulin. Macleod worked alongside Banting and spent much of his career researching carbohydrate metabolism. Banting was just 32 years old when he was awarded the prize and received a lifetime annuity from the Canadian government to continue his research. King George V knighted Banting in 1934. In 2004, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation program The Greatest Canadian declared Banting as fourth on their list of the greatest Canadians of all time. • Lester Bowles Pearson was sixth on The Greatest Canadian list. This Toronto-born professor, historian, statesman, diplomat, and politician won the Peace prize in 1957 for his efforts in organizing the United Nations Emergency Force to resolve the Suez Canal Crisis. The Suez Canal, completed in 1869, was the shortest link between the

Mediterranean Sea and the Indian Ocean, and immediately became strategically important in the trade industry. In 1956, the Egyptian government seized control of the canal from the British and French-owned company that managed it, which threated to cut off Europe’s oil supply. A conflict erupted between Israeli and Egyptian forces. The United Nations resolution called for a ceasefire and evacuation of troops. In 1963, Pearson was elected as the 14th Prime Minister of Canada and served until 1968. He is considered one of the 20th century’s most influential Canadians.

Safety Bits

Spring or Winter…Melting or Freezing?

Spring Melt Safety Tips With the recent temperature fluctuations causing the snow and ice to melt and freeze daily and add a fresh snow fall to that and it can cause some dangerous situations for pedestrians. While the best advice for pedestrians in these types of conditions is to pay very careful attention to what type of surface you are walking on or to anticipate what might be underneath, here are some simple safety tips that will help keep you safe when you decide to venture outside: The right footwear can make all the difference! Seems obvious, but often overlooked. Good winter shoes/boots with a soft, aggressive rubber sole is best as the rubber doesn’t freeze as quick and allows for better ice grip. •GOOD: non-skid shoes, anti-slip over shoes, ice walkers •BAD: cowboy boots, sneakers, leather or plastic soled shoes •For individuals who require different footwear at the workplace or office, don’t try to use inside footwear outside, this is a common mistake. For your safety, take your inside footwear with you and use proper outside footwear until you get to work; even if just to walk through the parking lot! •Stay on surfaces you can see what you are walking on; it is usually what we don’t see that gets us into trouble. •Stay on flat surfaces; it is when your sole doesn’t completely touch the surface you are walking on that will cause a slip and fall…OUCH! •Watch where you are walking and anticipate what may or may not be underneath that puddle or little bit of snow from the night before. The smallest amount of snow or water makes ice 10 times more dangerous and slippery. Should the unfortunate occurrence of a fall happen, take these initial steps: •Remain calm and don’t move (at least for a minute or two to evaluate the situation); even if you are outside and it is cold out, try not to move until you can assess the situation and if you are injured •If you hit your head, have pain in your neck or back or cannot remember what happened, act immediately and call or have someone call 9-1-1 •Moving any part of your body that is injured can make the injury worse; aside from the increased pain of movement, it can cause muscle damage, circulation problems or increase any bleeding that may have occurred. •For simple sprains and strains from falls, the pneumonic R-I-C-E is a good reminder of what to do: •R-rest injury for 24 to 48 hours •I-ice the area for 20 minutes 4 to 8 times a day •C-compression with elastic wraps will help reduce the swelling •E-elevation of the injured limb Brought To You By:

PRESSURE WASHERS 4930707/033011

STARTING THIS WEEK: “FROZEN’’: The Disney studio added another animated smash to its inventory with this hugely successful fantasy, adapted from Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen’’ and sparked by a woman (voice of Idina Menzel) with the gift - and curse - of turning anything, or anyone, to ice. She runs away to stop herself from hurting those she loves, but her sister (voice of Kristen Bell) goes in pursuit. Jonathan Groff is heard as the seeker’s partner in adventure, with Josh Gad hilarious as an offbeat snowman named Olaf. DVD extras: theatrical trailer; music videos; “Get a Horse’’ short subject. *** (PG: AS) (Also on Blu-ray) “AMERICAN HUSTLE’’: One of the past year’s most acclaimed and honored movies reunites director and co-writer David O. Russell with several actors he’s worked with before, including Christian Bale and Amy Adams of “The Fighter’’ and Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper of “Silver Linings Playbook.’’ The seriocomic story’s springboard is the Abscam scandal, with Cooper as an FBI agent who recruits a con-artist team (Bale, Adams) to help bring down corrupt politicians. Jeremy Renner, Louis C.K. and Elisabeth Rohm also appear. DVD extras: “making-of ’’ documentary; deleted and extended scenes. **** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand) “MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM’’: Idris Elba (“Luther’’) does commendable work as the South African icon in this biography, which was entering the main phase of its theatrical run when Nelson Mandela died. The film traces the hugely inspirational leader’s experiences up to and through his presidency, including his 27 years in prison and his relationship with wife Winnie (Naomie Harris, “Skyfall’’). DVD extras: “making-of ’’ documentary; audio commentary by director Justin Chadwick. *** (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand) “KILL YOUR DARLINGS’’: Three icons of poetry - Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs - are among the central characters in this fact-inspired murder mystery that boasts an impressive cast. Daniel Radcliffe is light-years away from Harry Potter as Ginsberg, whose college inclusion in a somewhat elite group draws the ire of an envious onlooker (Michael C. Hall, “Dexter’’). Ben Foster plays Burroughs, and Jack Huston (“Boardwalk Empire’’) is Kerouac, with Dane DeHaan, Elizabeth Olsen, Jennifer Jason Leigh and David Cross also featured. DVD extras: audio commentary by Radcliffe, DeHaan, director and co-writer John Krokidas and co-writer Austin Bunn; deleted scenes; Toronto Film Festival footage; “In Conversation’’ featurette with Radcliffe and DeHaan; Q&A with Krokidas and Bunn. *** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand) “DEVIOUS MAIDS: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON’’: Eva Longoria reteamed with “Desperate Housewives’’ mentor Marc Cherry as executive producers of this Lifetime series, with Susan Lucci, Ana Ortiz, Roselyn Sanchez (“Without a Trace’’), Judy Reyes, Brett Cullen and Grant Show in the ensemble cast. As the title suggests, the show revolves around the lives of several domestics who try to cope with personal dramas while fulfilling professional expectations. Season 2 is slated to begin telecasts in mid-April. DVD extras: “making-of ’’ documentary; deleted and extended scenes; outtakes. *** (Not rated: AS, P, V) “FLASHPOINT: THE FINAL SEASON’’: Still seen in repeats on ION, the well-written, well-acted Canadian police drama wrapped up its five-year run with this set of episodes. The Strategic Response Unit led by Greg Parker and Ed Lane (Enrico Colantoni, Hugh Dillon) deals with cases involving a man who takes his ex-wife hostage and former soldiers who unite to stage a big cash heist. Amy Jo Johnson, David Paetkau and Sergio Di Zio also star. *** (Not rated: AS, P, V)

The lawyer was trying to undermine the police officer’s credibility..... Q: ‘Officer --- did you see my client fleeing the scene?’ A: ‘No, sir. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.’ Q: ‘Officer, who provided this description?’ A: ‘The officer who responded to the scene.’ Q: ‘A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?’ A: ‘Yes, sir. With my life.’ Q: ‘With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?’ A: ‘Yes sir, we do!’ Q: ‘And do you have a locker in the room?’ A: ‘Yes, sir, I do.’ Q: ‘And do you have a lock on your locker?’ A: ‘Yes, sir.’ Q: ‘Now, why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?’ A: ‘You see, sir, we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.’ The courtroom EXPLODED with laughter, and a prompt recess was called.

DR. ALBERT SCHWEITZER The accomplishments of service toward mankind of Dr. Albert Schweitzer are considerable, including a Nobel Peace Prize. Take some time to learn more about this remarkable individual. •In 1875, Schweitzer was born into a German family with a long line of ministers, organists, and educators. So it made perfect sense for him to begin theological studies in 1893 at the University of Strasbourg in Alsace. Seven years later, with a doctorate in philosophy, he began preaching at St. Nicholas Church in Strasbourg. •In addition to religious courses, Schweitzer had studied piano and organ with the head of the music department at the Paris Conservatory. As well as his preaching and several high-ranking administrative posts at a theological college, Schweitzer had a renowned musical career as a concert organist. He earned money for his education from professional musical engagements, as well as publishing a book on organ building and playing when he was 31. That same year, he penned a book on the life of Bach and a theological title The Quest of the Historical Jesus. • By age 30, Schweitzer had decided to go to Africa as a missionary, but rather than as a pastor, he had the desire to go as a doctor. He began medical school and eight years later, he had obtained his M.D. He married at 37, and at 38, he and his wife founded a hospital at Lambarene in French Equatorial Africa. During their first nine months, they examined nearly 2,000 patients, many of whom had traveled for days and hundreds of miles to reach him. •World War I broke out one year after the Schweitzers’ arrival in Africa. Because they were German citizens in a French colony, in 1917 they were sent to an internment camp as prisoners of war. A year later they were released and returned to Europe where he earned a living playing organ recitals and giving lectures. Their daughter was born in 1919. •In 1924, Albert Schweitzer returned to Lambarene alone. His wife, not well enough to accompany him, remained behind with their daughter Rhena. It was in Lambarene that he would spend most of the remainder of his life, except for occasional short visits home. He used the money from royalties and lecture fees, along with donations from across the globe to enlarge the hospital to 70 buildings. In 1953, at age 78, Schweitzer was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his humanitarian efforts, and used the $33,000 prize money to start a leprosy clinic. •Although daughter Rhena saw little of her father while growing up, as an adult with grown children, she traveled to Lambarene to work with him. He asked her to serve as the administrator of the hospital, and after his death at age 90, Rhena took over that role, a position she held for many years. • Throughout his life in Lambarene, Albert Schweitzer was their doctor, surgeon, pastor, village administrator, and building superintendent, all the while remaining a scholar, author, historian, and musician. In his words, “Life becomes harder for us when we live for others, but it also becomes richer and happier.”
