Nobel Prize for Peace

Nobel Prize for Peace in 1901

Nobel Prize split equally between both Jean-Henri Dunant and Frederic Passy.

Les Prix Nobel does not record that either of the laureates was present; and neither delivered a Nobel lecture later, each, at his own request, having been released from this obligation by the Nobel Committee.
