  1. Susan Marie Frontczak

    I am glad to see Marie Curie at the top of your list! However you may be unaware that the image you display is not a photograph of Marie Curie. It is a photograph of me portraying Marie Curie. Please see my web site: http://www.storysmith.org/manya. I request that to use this photo, you include a caption “Marie Curie as portrayed by Susan Marie Frontczak” and that you include a live link to my website. Also, Marie Curie was the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize (in 1903), but others did receive the Nobel Prize before her (in 1901 and 1902).
