This picture was taken at St. Catharine’s School for Girls in Hong Kong. The picture of Alfred Nobel was located in a science lab along with other important scientists. What most people don’t know is that Alfred Nobel was first a student, then a scientist, then a businessman and finally a philanthropist…the world’s first and greatest philanthropist. Although his most famous invention was Dynamite, he is most remembered for the creation of the Nobel Prizes, of which the Nobel Peace Prize is the most famous prize in the world …and the most controversial.  Alfred Nobel has been a great inspiration to both Claes Nobel and Marcus Nobel for his great humanitarian work for a peaceful world.
