Caption: Marie Curie and US President Harding. The Polish-French physicist and chemist Marie Curie (1867-1934) was at the White House in Washington DC, USA, to be presented with a gram of radium by the US President Warren G. Harding (1865-1923). This presentation was on behalf of the women of America to honour Curie's discovery of this radioactive element. Marie had received the 1911 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for her discovery of polonium and radium. She and her husband Pierre (1859-1906) had shared the 1903 Nobel Prize in Physics for their work on radioactivity in 1898. Photographed on 20 May 1921.
