Glenn T. Seaborg
|He was the professor of chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley, who discovered plutonium, americium, curium, and other transuranium elements. Seaborg proposed that the elements starting with atomic number 90 belonged to a class analogous to the rare earths, instead of with the transition metals. Seaborgium is the first element named for a living person.|
