Anyone else noticed, fowler, cooper and hofstadter? Besides higgs, I hardly recognise any after 1933 (well my eye fell on richter and bohr, but not the right surnames ;) purcell, wrong field of work (music) etc ) 1901-1933 I know about half, 16 I believe)

This quiz is already seven years old, but can you accept 'van der Waals' etc.? That is the proper last name: we talk, for example, about van der Waals forces, not "Waals forces".
