The Czech Lands and Noble Prizes for Physics and Chemistry in 1901–1954

(České země a Nobelovy ceny za fyziku a chemii 1901–1954)

The author deals with the procedure used at the proposals for Nobel prizes for physics and chemistry in 1901–1954. During these years, only two Czechs – Emil Votoček and Jaroslav Heyrovský, and one Austrian – Viktor Kaplan, were nominated for these prizes. All the three lived and worked in Czechoslovakia then, and were proposed from the Czech lands. Together 22 Czech and 11 German professors of physics and chemistry, engaged at Czech and German universities, participated in the nominating process.
