You just can't get it right, can you. That speech was made by Dr. H.R. Törnebladh, President of the 
Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. It mentions Professor Becquerel, but it's not made by him.

I'm not really surprised. The first time he actually quotes a source outside his web site and gets 
the person who made the speech wrong.

Of course you continue to ignore the fact that Pierre left his work in crystals and symmetry in 
nature to assist Marie.
