Caption: Marie and Pierre Curie. Marie Curie (1867-1934, nee Marya Sklodowska), was born in Poland. In 1891 she became a student at the Sorbonne university in Paris, France. There she met and married the French physicist Pierre Curie (1859- 1906). They isolated the radioactive elements polonium and radium in 1898. Marie and Pierre won shares of the 1903 Nobel Prize for Physics, and Marie won the 1911 Nobel Prize for Chemistry (Pierre died in an accident in 1906). Photographed to accompany an article in the American magazine The Twentieth Century Home, commemorating their discovery of radium.
