Caption: Frederic Joliot-Curie, French physicist, born in Paris on March 19th, 1900, died in Paris on August 14th, 1958. Joliot obtained a degree in engineering & in 1925 became assistant to Marie Curie, marrying her daughter Irene in 1926 when they began working together on radioactivity as the Curies had done before them. In 1934, they were rewarded with the discovery of "artificial radioactivity" in an isotope of phosphorus, which earned them the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1935. Joliot-Curie's subsequent work on nuclear chain reactions, interrupted by wartime resistance activities, led to the development of an independent French nuclear capability.
