He is giving the traditional 'cockchafer speech'. At left is German biochemist Adolf Butenandt (1903-1995), who attended the Lindau Meetings over 30 times. At right is Indian physicist Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman (1888-1970). This was the only time Pauli and Raman attended the Lindau Meetings. Pauli was awarded the 1945 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on quantum mechanics. Butenandt was awarded a share of the 1939 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on sex hormones. Raman was awarded the 1930 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on light scattering.
