(1930 - )
Jerome Friedman was born in 1930 in Chicago, IL. The co-recipient of a Nobel Prize for Physics in 1990 conducted experiments on a linear accelerator and demonstrated that neutrons and protons were formed of quarks, the fundamental energy packets from which all matter is composed. A professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 1960, he headed the school's physics department from 1983 to 1988.
