1888 A French newspaper writes that Alfred Nobel has died. Nobel does not want to be remembered as being a man who spent his life making bombs and exploding things. He is a very rich man and decides to leave all of his money for a NOBEL PRIZE. He writes his will in 1895.

When his will was opened it came as a shock to everyone that his fortune was to be used for Prizes in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature and Peace. Henry Dunant, founder of the Red Cross, shared the first Nobel Peace Prize in 1901 with Frédéric Passy. http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/ http://home.online.no/~c-ottko/NO/page3_NO.htm http://www.nobel-paix.ch/bio/passy.htm
