    No one knew of Alfred Nobel’s desire to establish a prize until after his death when his will was read. In fact many including his family were shocked and opposed the prize delaying its inception for some five years. In his will Nobel states that the prize should go to the person who “during the preceding year, shall have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind.” He then goes on to state the five categories for which the prize will be given. Finally, he states that nationality should not be a factor in the choosing of the resipient. To read the excerpt from his will yourself follow the link below.
