Willard Libby – Hope, efforts, promise for the future and preservation.

True, the initial ideas are in general those of an individual, but the establishment of the reality and truth is in general the work of more than one person.

Willard Frank Libby was an American physical chemist noted for his role in the 1949 development of radiocarbon dating, a process which revolutionized archaeology and palaeontology. For his contributions to the team that developed this process, Libby was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1960.

Died: September 8, 1980

Inventions: Radiocarbon dating

The future of the world, dependent as it is upon atomic energy, requires more understanding and knowledge about the atom. 

A 1931 chemistry graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, from which he received his doctorate in 1933, he studied radioactive elements and developed sensitive Geiger counters to measure weak natural and artificial radioactivity. During World War II he worked in the Manhattan Project’s Substitute Alloy Materials (SAM) Laboratories at Columbia University, developing the gaseous diffusion process for uranium enrichment.
