It is appreciable to encourage and honor those who had contributed meaningfully to the progress and success of people, or those who brought succor and harmony to mankind through the use of their wealth, talents or other personal resources. This will definitely encourage other people to also contribute their quota to the development of the society. This was the origin of the Noble Prize award. When did the first Nobel Prize winner win the award? What were his achievements? How much was the prize?
