Caption: Chien-Shiung Wu and Wallace Brode. At left is Chinese-US physicist Chien-Shiung Wu (1912-1997), with US chemist Wallace Reed Brode (1900-1974) at right. Born in China, Wu moved to the USA in 1936, becoming a physics professor at Columbia University, New York, in 1957. She played a key role in the particle physics experiments that led to the award of the 1957 Nobel Prize in Physics to her colleagues Lee and Yang, but was herself overlooked. Wu experimentally confirmed other particle theories, and received the 1978 Wolf Prize in Physics for her work. Brode was Science Adviser to the US Secretary of State from 1958 to 1960, and received the Priestley Medal in 1960. Photographed on 15 March 1958.
