Nobel Laureates and Prize recipients

Dr. James Peebles

Dr. James Peebles, was born in St. Boniface and obtained his Bachelor of Science (Hons) from the University of Manitoba in 1958. He went on to study at Princeton University where he obtained his Doctorate and continued his research in cosmology while teaching physics as the Albert Einstein Professor of Science.

Dr. Peebles first achieved recognition by predicting, with a colleague, that evidence for the big bang should still be observable, in the form of cosmic microwave background radiation. But Dr. Peebles’ major life work was on the clustering of galaxies in space. He learned how to extract information on clustering from catalogues of galaxy positions and showed how to use this information to test theories of galactic formation.

More about Dr. James Peebles

Peebles is also a prolific donor to UM and its Front and Centre Campaign. Having been the recipient of financial support during his undergrad, Peebles has given back in gratitude over the past three decades to initiatives like the Centennial Scholarship in Physics and the Isbister Undergraduate Scholarships (which he received twice while pursuing his UM degree).

In recognition of his extraordinary scientific achievements, the University of Manitoba has renamed the Science and Technology Library to the Jim Peebles Science and Technology Library.
