Our Nobel Prize laureate

Ukrainians are not lucky with the Noble prizes for some reason… The pleasant exception was only Igor Tamm (in the photo), the graduating student of Yelysavetgradsk high school of 1913 year, and another its student Mozes Gomberg was twice nominated for this prize as a representative of American science. Although, as Faust Nikitin, a class-mate of Igor Tamm, remembers, there were problems with his national identification.
