Caption: Jerome Karle (1918-2013), US chemist. Karle studied at Harvard University, and then at the University of Michigan, obtaining his doctorate in 1944. It was his post-World War II work with US mathematician Herbert Hauptman, at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC, that led to groundbreaking work in X-ray crystallography. For this work, Karle and Hauptman were jointly awarded the 1985 Nobel Prize in Chemistry: 'for their outstanding achievements in developing direct methods for the determination of crystal structure'. Karle was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Photographed at the American Crystallographic Association (ACA), where Karle was president in 1972.
