list of two charming scientists (under construction)


- James Clerk Maxwell ("a private tutor who had been employed to teach him was not optimistic, reporting that he was a slow learner. Later Maxwell got the nicnkame "Dafty" from his schoolmates... When Marischal College, where he was a professor of natural philosophy, was merged with King's College to form Aberdeen University, two professorships were merged into one, and his post was given to the professor at King's, forcing Maxwell to seek another position. He applied for the professorship at Edinburgh University, which had become vacant, but it was given to one of his friends and former classmates instead," Lawrence M. Kraus's Hiding in the Mirror) ("... a brilliant scientist who counted among his many interests... measuring latitude with a bowl of treacle, and the question of how cats land upright while conserving angular momentum when dropped upside down," Lisa Randall, Warped Passages); 
- Michael Faraday ("was a common man with an uncommon passion. In his lifetime he refused both a kighthood and the presidency of the Royal Society, preferring to remain, in his words, just plain Michael Faraday," Lawrence M. Kraus's Hiding in the Mirror);

[Faraday reminds me of Friedrich W. J. Schelling]
