About the Author:

Born in Paris on December 6, 1904, Ève Denise Curie Labouisse was graduated at Collège Sévigné a Bachelor of Science and later as Bachelor of Science. Ève was the only member of her family who did not choose a career as a scientist and did not win a Nobel Prize. At the age of 16, she accompanied her mother, Mme. Curie, on a grand tour of the United States. After the death of her mother, Mile. Curie lived in a small apartment in Auteuil collecting and classifying the papers, manuscripts and personal documents left by Mme. Curie. Having decided to write the biography of her famous mother, she went to Poland in the August of 1935 to obtain all possible material on the youth of Mme. Curie. She brought back to France a quantity of letters photographs and other papers and at once began the composition of this book which has been published simultaneously in the United States, England, France Italy and Spain. Madame Curie was instantly popular; in many countries including the United States it was a bestseller. In the U.S. it won the third annual National Book Award for Non-Fiction voted by the American Booksellers Association. She was married but had no children. After her husband died, she lived the last years of her life in New York City where she died on October 22, 2007 at age 102. Her mother Marie Curie was born Maria Salomea Skłodowska on 7 November 1867 in Warsaw Poland. Among the first discoveries of Marie Skłodowska Curie was the discovery of the element Polonium, a chemical element with symbol Po and atomic number 84. It was discovered in 1898 by Marie and Pierre Curie, identified solely by its strong radioactivity: It was the first element to be so discovered. It was named after Marie Curie's homeland of Poland. Several other retroactive elements were discovered by her after the death of Pierre Curie. Named after her was the element Curium. This is a transuranic radioactive chemical element with symbol Cm and atomic number 96. She met Pierre Curie, married him and went on to her first achievements in science. A street accident killed Pierre and with her two children she carried her work forward alone. Because of her, the armament of medicine was to gain a new weapon. On 4 July 1934, she died at the Sancellemoz sanatorium in Passy, Haute-Savoie, from aplastic anemia believed to have been contracted from her long-term exposure to radiation. Her work is now being carried on by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley California.
