|Personal Fact of Melvin Schwartz|
Melvin Schwartz was an American physicist who along with Leon M. Lederman and Jack Steinberger played a prominent role in the development of the neutrino beam method for which the trio received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1988. The pioneering experiments conducted by the men showed for the first time that two types of neutrinos existed.
Born in New York City during the Great Depression, Schwartz had a difficult childhood as his parents struggled to provide economic stability for the family. But despite the challenging circumstances, his parents instilled in their young son the importance of contributing to the betterment of mankind. He attended the Bronx High School of Science where he realized his love for physics.
He then proceeded to study physics at Columbia University, and embarked on an academic career after completing his PhD. He became a professor of physics at Stanford University after teaching at Columbia for a few years. It was at Columbia that he met his future collaborators Jack Steinberger and Leon M. Lederman; with them he performed the experiments that would eventually earn them the Nobel Prize in Physics. After years of a successful academic career he ventured into newer territories and founded a company, Digital Pathways.
