The evolution of scientific fame

The evolution of scientific fame suprised me somewhat by the late emergence of Einstein (he first appears in 1930), and the number of people that I had never heard of. I also like the word portrait of Charles Darwin.

  1. Actually Einstein shows up briefly in 1905. Claude Bernard figured very prominently - he appears to have promoted the idea that medicine should be a science. His use of vivisection would not make him popular today.
