Well, you got a zero for reading comprehension, ParseTree.

If you had paid attention to the url at,
then you would already know that it was a Swedish woman, Gösta
Mittag-Leffler, a professor of mathematics at Stockholm University College,
who asked Pierre to consider asking the Nobel committee to award half of his
half to his wife, a lab assistant.  Gösta didn't make this request out of
any serious concern for science, integrity, honor, but only because Marie
was his wife.

No other reason was given.  The committee had never even put her in the
running.  And Pierre, being the whimp that he was, responded that for
"artistic" reasons, he would make such a request.

It really was a stupid thing to do.  They might just as well have added his
cat to the award, too.  And then when Prime Minister of France Georges
Bidault removed her son without explanation from his position as high
commissioner, and a few months later Irene was also deprived of her position
as commissioner in the Commissariat a 1'Energie Atomique, the jews cried


Gee whiz, now you know why you've heard her name so much for the last
century, eh?
