Trivia Answer: St. Lucia

Congratulations to Maitreya Dunham and Shastri Sandy who both knew that the country which has given birth to the most Nobel prize winners as a fraction of its population is the Caribbean island nation of St. Lucia. They each won a pair of tickets, two sodas, and large tub of popcorn courtesy of LSC.

Two Nobel laureates have been born in St. Lucia, which has a population of 144,000. Sir Arthur Lewis (b. 1915d. 1991) won the Nobel prize in Economics in 1979, and the poet Derek Walcott (b. 1930) won the Literature prize in 1992. Roughly estimated, if the United States had that per capita rate, there would have to be more than three times the total number of Nobel laureates and everyone would have to be an American!
