(1929 - )
Murray Gell-Mann was born in 1929 in New York City. This physicist studied and clarified the puzzling phenomenon of elementary subatomic particles, classifying them as quarks within an ordering system he called the Eightfold Way. The achievement earned him the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1969. He also served on the faculties of Chicago University, Princeton University and the California Institute of Technology.
