MIT had 75 Nobel prize winners

I do not know if it is a record while checking some facts on MIT site ,i became aware that 75 persons connected with MIT have recieved the honors from Nnobel committe for their out standind work.59 of these laureates are still alive and continue to promote the culture of learning worldwide.

Two of the Indian Origin Nobel laureates, Amartya Sen(1998 economics) and Har Gobind Khorana (1968 medicine) served as teachers at MIT.

Paul Krugman NYT columnist is also a MIT teacher and Alum.

Quite impressive for a school in Boston
