|6 American Nobel laureates and a President|
A few thoughts:
The United States does very well in Nobel prizes. It's probably good for us that the prizes are given by Swedish institutions and not American ones.
An American president spends a lot of time with the White House photographer. (You wonder when a newly elected president learns just how much of his time will be spent having his picture taken.)
The pictures each came with a sticker on the back saying that they were not to be disseminated without permission. I asked for and immediately received permission from the White House Photo Office to post these on my blog (in an email from Rick McKay, 2/21/13).
