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.
