Default To Jack (jrjohanson), regarding the Nobel Prize for peace

You got a good point there Jack. If I am correct the Norwegians took over that part in '85, but I actually never questioned myself why.

I am sure you will take delight in updating me on this matter ;-)

Hälsningar /Edwin

Default Nobel testament

Nedenfor kopi av tetamentet (uten at det forklarer hvorfor!?):

"öfver hela min återstående realiserbara förmögenhet förfogas på följande sätt: kapitalet, af utredningsmännen realiseradt till säkra värdepapper, skall utgöra en fond, hvars ränta årligen utdelas som prisbelöning åt dem, som under det förlupna året hafva gjort menskligheten den största nytta. Räntan delas i fem lika delar, som tillfalla: en del den, som inom fysikens område har gjort den viktigaste upptäckt eller uppfinning; en del den, som har gjort den viktigaste kemiska upptäckt eller uppfinning; en del den, som har gjort den vigtigaste upptäckt inom fysiologiens eller medicinens domän; en del den, som inom litteraturen har producerat det utmärktaste i idealisk rigtning; och en del åt den, som har verkat mest eller bäst för folkens förbrödrande och afskaffande eller minskning af stående arm‚er samt bildande och spridande af fredskongresser. Prisen för fysik och kemi utdelas af Svenska Vetenskapsakademien; för fysiologiska eller medicinska arbeten af Carolinska institutet i Stockholm; för litteratur af Akademien i Stockholm samt för fredsförfäktare af ett utskott af fem personer, som väljas af Norska Stortinget. Det är min uttryckliga vilja att vid prisutdelningen intet afseende fästas vid någon slags nationalitetstillhörighet, sålunda att den värdigaste erhåller priset, antigen han är skandinav eller ej..."
Paris den 27. november 1895.

Alfred Bernhard Nobel

One thing to consider is that Norway was a part of Sweden (or at least in a union with Sweden) in 1895. Norway got it's independence 10 years later, 1905, as I am sure you know.

Still not an explanation, but at least it was kept within the borders at that time. I am guessing that Alfred Nobel thought that the Nowegian Stortinget was an authority when it came to world politics as the other institutes where experts in their departments.

Coul be Mattias.
May be also connected with the fact that Nobel had participated actively with the building of of some dynamite plants in Norway.

Anyway his testament was written (I think) in his grand villa in San Remo, so maybe the borders didn't mean so much. And just for the record, officially we was not a "part" of Sweden, but in union with Sweden as our sovereign independence was stated already in 1814.
