Personal Fact of Murray Gell-Mann

Murray Gell-Mann is an American physicist, who won the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work in the classification of subatomic particles. Interestingly, as a school boy, he never liked physics and took up the subject as his major just on whim. He was only fifteen years old when he entered the University of Yale as an undergraduate student. Fortunately, he soon began to find the subject enthralling and earned his BS when he was barely eighteen.

After receiving his PhD from MIT he spent a brief period at the Institute of Advance Study for his post doc. He later joined Institute for Nuclear Studies, University of Chicago, where he introduced his concept of strangeness. However, the longest period of his working life has been at California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. Later he cofounded Santa Fe Institute in New Mexico and joined it as one of its distinguished faculties.

Although he was a renowned physicist and has introduced many new concepts, he was interested in a wide range of subject and towards the end of his career he spearheaded the Evolution of Human Languages Program at Santa Fe Institute.
