Nobel Laureate in Physiology and Medicine (1967) for his work on the significance of vitamin A in retinal function. A vocal opponent of the Vietnam War: his March 4, 1969 speech at MIT against the war and against the stockpiling of nuclear weapons propelled him to the front lines of anti-war advocacy.
