Caption: Albert Ghiorso (1915-2010), US nuclear chemist (at right), receiving the Franklin Institute's Potts Medal for 1969. Ghiorso worked on the Manhattan Project in World War II, and his subsequent career was in nuclear physics. He worked with Glenn T. Seaborg on the early cyclotrons, carrying out work that resulted in the discovery of many new heavy elements. Ghirso is credited with the co-discovery of 12 of these new elements. The Potts Medal was for his contributions to the synthesis and identification of mendelevium, nobelium and lawrencium.Restrictions:.
