Nobel Prizes of 1929

This editorial from the Montreal Gazette of 14 November 1929 comments on the recipients of the Nobel Prize.  It provides a brief description of the winners in the sciences, but gives most of the space over to a discussion of German author Thomas Mann.  The editorial optimistically asserts that Mann is a firm believer in the Weimar constitution, and hopes that he will contribute to lasting peace between France and Germany.
