In 1938 there was printed in Sweden a book on "The Nobel Prizes and Their Founder Alfred Nobel," by Fritz Henricksson (The Journal, Aug. 19, 1939, p. 711). Now there becomes available a pamphlet entitled "Nobel Prize Winners," compiled by Flora Kaplan and dedicated to Jane Addams. This includes also a brief sketch of Alfred Nobel, a copy of his will, a complete table of Nobel prize winners from 1901 to 1938 with reclassification by nationality and with brief biographic sketches of Nobel prize winners in each of the various categories. There are also special analyses of Nobel prize winners by nationality, sex, race and religion. Both these pamphlets are exceedingly useful sources of reference on this most interesting topic.
