King ! 2 publisher of over 300 scientific papers, received his diploma in mathematics and physics in 1900, after having written his first essay (“On the Investigation of the State of the Ether in a Magnetic Field”) in 1894 when he was just 15 years old. The word Einstein has also been adopted as a synonym for genius. I included this because it felt like an eye opener; to have Einstein support Curie’s cause and even complement her work is amazing, and I think this is something that is for all audiences, even though it is very short (or maybe because it is short). I found this letter on ebscohost via the Tulsa Community College database. However, it is only one of a collection of Einstein’s letters kept at Yale University. Badash, Lawrence. "Marie Curie: In The Laboratory And On The Battlefield." Physics Today 56.7 (2003): 37. Academic Search Premier . Web. 24 Nov. 2014. Lawrence Badash (1934-2010) is the author of “Marie Curie:In The Laboratory and on the Battlefield”. Badash received his PhD in History of Science in 1964. He is the author of many other works, including the books “The Bomb” and “A Nuclear Winter’s Tale”. Badash also taught as the Professor in History of Science at the University of California in Santa Babara. The article is very passionately written, focusing on Curie’s work during the WWI years. It is meant to be read by fellow scholars as well as university students, and was published in the July 2003 edition of Physics Today . I found this full length article using ebscohost via the Tulsa Community College database. While the paper is more focused on the physics aspect of Curie’s work (especially the discovery of radioactivity), it also explains some of the chemistry used, and greatly reports of her, and her daughter Irene’s, work in the front lines, which included training x-ray technicians and treating shrapnel injured soldiers, making it a good read for any audience. Curie, Eve. "Marie Curie, My Mother." Saturday Evening Post 210.13 (1937): 23-40. Academic Search Premier . Web. 24 Nov. 2014. Eve Curie, daughter to Marie and Pierre Curie, wrote this article in 1937 only three years after Marie passed away. Eve wrote a short biography of her mother, and gave a lot of personal insight to Marie’s story, concentrating on presenting a very nurturing and caring scientist. Eve wrote with great detail of how her mother stumbled upon the topic of radioactivity, and how she worked in a damp little laboratory, discovering what would become a game changer in chemistry and physics. It is very well written, but I think that when reading it, one can tell that it is written by a briefing daughter. While Eve decided against becoming a scientist, she did receive two bachelors; in biology and in philosophy. She was also very well known for her writing, and worked for UNICEF diligently. This article, which was originally published in more than five countries, is written for an audience made up of Curie followers, who might just look for a little more insight into her life. I found this article on ebscohost via the Tulsa Community College database. Des Jardins, Julie. "The Passion Of Madame Curie." Smithsonian 42.6 (2011): 82-90. Academic
