Caption: Frederick Soddy (1877-1956), British chemist. After graduating from Oxford, Soddy spent several years in Canada from 1900 working with Ernest Rutherford to explain the underlying mechanism of radioactive decay. On his return to the UK he worked with Ramsay in London. He then spent ten years in Glasgow, where he showed that uranium decays to radium, and also furthered the understanding of isotopes. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1910. He also worked at the universities of both Aberdeen and Oxford. His work on radioactive decay led to him being awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
