Discovery of N-Fission
LONDON — Dr. Lise Meitner,
famed Austrian-born nuclear phy-
sicist who was scientific partner
of Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto
Hahn, died Sunday at age 89.
Dr. Meitner first calculated the
energy released by splitting the
uranium atom and thus is credited
with having laid much of the the-
oretical groundwork for the atom
bomb. Dr. Hahn was the discoverer
of nuclear fission.
The two of them did pioneering
research for 30 years at the Kaiser
Wilhelm Institute in Germany, but
when they were on the verge of
their greatest discovery, Dr. Meit-

In March 1938, she fled to Sweden.

for her philanthropic activities in

and in Florida she shared many
distinctions as a worker for the
Jewish National Fund and Mizrachi
as well as other causes in support
of Israel and in behalf of needy
widows and orphans.
A former president of the Jewish
Women's European Welfare Or-
ganization, she helped organize the
North Woodward JWEWO branch
and carried her efforts on to Flori-
da where she mobilized the forces
from this group in activities in
behalf of the needy among settlers
in Florida. She lived there for
more than 20 years before return-
