Caption: Marie Curie and students. Polish-French physicist and chemist Marie Curie (centre, 1867-1934) was born Marya Sklodowska in Poland, moving to Paris, France, in 1891. She studied at the Sorbonne, marrying Pierre Curie in 1895. Together, they worked on the radioactivity discovered by Becquerel, and with him they shared the 1903 Nobel Prize in Physics. As part of this work, they had discovered two new elements, polonium and radium. This led to Marie receiving the 1911 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. This photograph, dating from around the period 1910 to 1915, is from the Bain News Service, one of the USA's earliest news picture libraries.
