Nobel Peace Prize[edit]

In 1947 she was nominated for Nobel Peace Prize but no one received it the next year.

  • Being nominated for the Peace Prize is an honor, but it is not official and not necessarily prestigious. Any national legislator or about a third of the university professors in the world can make a nomination, and there have been as many as 160 some years. Rumored nominees have included a Brazilian psychic (nominated twice) and an unscrupulous businessmen from Ohio. Nominators are requested to keep their nominations secret, so it's only those wishing publicity who make announcements. In most instances the reports of prize nominations seem to just be unattributed rumors. Altogether, I see no reason to keep it. No offense to the subject, this is a general Nobel Peace Prize "nominees" issue. -Willmcw July 7, 2005 08:02 (UTC)

World Peace Prize[edit]

The article says she won the "World Peace Prize" in 1937. The linked page says the prize was founded in 1989. Qemist (talk) 05:32, 15 September 2011 (UTC)


I fail to see the sense in the link about her papers when the record that comes up specifically says none of them are online. This should be referenced in the article not as an external link. (talk) 20:35, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

no data on the page linked to[edit]

The free speech page does not have Schwimmer's name on it. None of the links on that page has the title given for the link. Where is this data now? (talk) 20:40, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
