Swedish chemist Alfred Nobel invented dynamite thinking it would end all wars. In 1888, when Alfred's brother Ludvig died, a French newspaper mistakenly ran an obituary for Alfred calling him the "merchant of death." Not wanting to go down in history with such a horrible epitaph, Nobel created a will that established the now famous Nobel Prizes. On the fifth anniversary of Alfred Nobel's death, December 10, 1901, the first set of Nobel Prizes were awarded.
