Dr. Paul Greengard, a 1948 graduate of Hamilton College who shared the 2000 Nobel Prize for Medicine, was featured in a NY Daily News article (Feb. 3, 2003) about his talented family. Greengard's wife is a sculptor, one son is a mathematician, another heads an IBM research facility, his daughter was a CNN producer and his sister won a Pulitzer Prize.
According to the article, "Still, Paul Greengard insists that life in a house of geniuses is not that different from any other household.
"'You want to know if we sit around the dinner table discussing the meaning of life or the creative process,'" Greengard said. "'It's more likely that we're discussing whose turn it is to do the dishes.'"
