Dr. Thomas C. Schelling – 2005 Nobel Prize in Economics for his work in understanding conflict, negotiation and cooperation through game-theory analysis. Often¬† referred to as the “Father of Game Theory,” Schelling served in the Truman, Eisenhower,¬† and Kennedy Administrations, and later became one of the founders of the Kennedy School at Harvard University.

Dr. William Phillips – 1997 Nobel Prize in Physics along with two colleagues, for development of methods to cool and trap atoms with laser light, a technique used to slow the movement of gaseous atoms in order to better study them. Dr. Phillips works at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg.
