Chemist, engineer, innovator, and armaments manufacturer. Invented dynamite, first demonstrating it in 1867 in a quarry in Redhill, Surrey. An inadvertently premature obituary, "The merchant of death is dead", prompted Nobel, with no wife or children, to leave his wealth to fund annual prizes for eminence in five fields, one of which is Peace.
