Inventor
    (October 21, 1833-December 10, 1896)
    Inventor of Dynamite
    Founded the Nobel Prize
    Held over 350 patents
    He was a lonely and melancholy man.
    He had a strong attachment to his mother, and could not find a woman he thought lived up to her standards.
    Because his wife ran off with a mathematician, he rused to offer a prize for mathematics.
    After his brother was killed in the family factory, while handling nitroglycerin (1864), he worked on a safe way of handling the chemical.
    He invented an organic packing material containing the nitroglycerin and named it 'dynamite' (1867).
    He invented ballistite, a smokeless powder.
    In his will of $9,000,000, he provided a bulk of it for the Nobel Prizes.
    One might see it as hypocrisy that a person who spent their life developing weapons would give prizes for peace.
    However, it was just his seeing the danger and potential of these weapons that made Nobel a man of peace.
