Question of the Day

Yesterday's question asked: Name the first person to share or win two Nobel prizes. Also, what other "first" did this win represent? Marie Curie was the first person (male or female) to be awarded two Nobel Prizes, and she was also the first woman, period, to be awarded the prize.

Congratulations to Craig Pittman of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to answer both correctly! Honorable snaps also go out to John WallTom BurtonHiram ReisnerHollywood Highlands, Ken WalkerThomas FeyerMargo HowardPaul DelColle and Amy Zipkin for also answering correctly.

As for today's question, here it is, continuing with the Nobel theme and with thanks again to Francis Hinchey for submitting it: Marie Curie's second prize (Chemistry) was awarded in a completely different category from her first (Physics). Who is the only other Nobel laureate to win two different prizes (i.e., in two different categories) and which categories were they? Be sure to answer both questions!
