Caption: Tadeus Reichstein (1897-1996), Polish-born Swiss chemist and Nobel laureate. Reichstein's early childhood was spent in Kiev, Ukraine, though he was educated in Germany and Switzerland, where the family eventually settled. His career was spent in Switzerland. Reichstein shared the 1950 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine with Edward Calvin Kendall and Philip Showalter Hench. The share of the Nobel was awarded for Reichstein's discoveries relating to the hormones of the adrenal cortex, such as cortisol, and its use in treating rheumatoid arthritis. He also devised a widely used method for the industrial production of vitamin C.
