Not Quite a Brush with Fame

hurwicz.jpgYou didn’t really believe that was my last post on the Nobel Prizes, did you? Well it was supposed to be, but my mom added some interesting information in the comments:

Turns out you have visited the home of one of the Nobel prize winners [Leonid Hurwicz] in Economics. Really! Doris mentioned that when going downstairs in her building earlier this week, there were many news stations and personnel at the entrance. Right, the prize-winner is a resident of her condo, and the news media were there to interview him.

Doris is my grandmother (step-grandmother, technically, which is why she is “Doris” to my mother), and she lives in a retirement condo building in southern Minneapolis. My mother says she met him on one of her visits.
