"Lars Onsager"

(1903 - 1976)
The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1968 was awarded to Lars Onsager "for the discovery of the reciprocal relations bearing his name, which are fundamental for the thermodynamics of irreversible processes".

In 1933 Onsager was appointed Sterling and Gibbs Fellow at Yale University, where he was to remain for the greater part of his life. Having awarded him a postdoctoral fellowship, the Chemistry Department was embarrassed to discover that he had no Ph.D.
