The Nobel Prize of 1923 (1978)


Description A brief discussion of the work of Wilson, Przibram, Millikan, and Ehrenhaft on determining the charge of the electron. Slowly the tide of criticism directed initially against Millikan turned against Ehrenhaft, and the awarding of the 1923 Nobel prize to Millikan announced the final acceptance of atomicity as an established experimental fact. (G. B. KAUFFMAN)
