He was the eldest of six children of the former Maria Hock, the daughter of a scientist, and Ignáz Bárány, born 1842 in Várpalota, who was a bank official and estate manager.[4] His parents were Hungarian Jews. He attended medical school at Vienna University, graduating in 1900. As a doctor in Vienna, Bárány was syringing fluid into the external auditory canal of a patient to relieve the patient's dizzy spells. The patient experienced vertigo and nystagmus (involuntary eye movement) when Bárány injected fluid that was too cold. In response, Bárány warmed the fluid for the patient and the patient experienced nystagmus in the opposite direction. Bárány theorized that the endolymph was sinking when it was cool and rising when it was warm, and thus the direction of flow of the endolymph was providing the proprioceptive signal to the vestibular organ. He followed up on this observation with a series of experiments on what he called the caloric reaction. The research resulting from his observations made surgical treatment of vestibular organ diseases possible. Bárány also investigated other aspects of equilibrium control, including the function of the cerebellum. He served with the Austrian army during World War I as a civilian surgeon and was captured by the Russian Army. When his Nobel Prize was awarded in 1914, Bárány was in a Russian prisoner of war camp. In response to his receiving the prize, Sigmund Freud wrote in 1915: "The granting of the Nobel Prize to Bárány, whom I refused to take as a pupil some years ago because he seemed to be too abnormal, has aroused sad thoughts about how helpless an individual is about gaining the respect of the crowd."[5] Bárány was released from the prisoner of war camp in 1916 following diplomatic negotiations with Russia conducted by Prince Carl of Sweden and the Red Cross. He was then able to attend the Nobel Prize awards ceremony in 1916, where he was awarded his prize. Virtually as soon as he was awarded the Nobel Prize, in January 1917, he, with the automatic qualification for making such proposals that comes with being a Prize Winner, proposed to the Nobel Committee in Physiology or Medicine that Sigmund Freud should be awarded the Prize.[6] From 1917 until his death he was professor at Uppsala University Faculty of Medicine. Bárány died shortly before his sixtieth birthday in Uppsala. He was the father of physician and Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences member Ernst Bárány (1910-1991) and grandfather of physicist Anders Bárány, former secretary of the Nobel Committee for Physics. Laura Hunter (Colwin) was born on July 5, 1911, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She received her AB from Bryn Mawr College in 1932 and her MA and Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. Laura Colwin and her late husband Arthur had a long association with the Marine Biological Laboratory. Both first came to the MBL in the 1930s to conduct independent research. Laura was a graduate student at Penn when she first arrived in Woods Hole. Arthur was a postdoctoral fellow at Yale University when he spent his first summer at the MBL a few years later. Laura and Arthur met here, and later married. Except during the war and a few sabbatical years, the Colwins returned to the MBL nearly every summer thereafter, conducting ground-breaking research in embryology and fertilization. They became members of the Corporation, served terms on the Board of Trustees, and later became Trustees Emeriti. In the 1950s, the Colwins used the nascent technology of electron microscopy to describe morphologically what happens when a sperm first encounters an egg during fertilization. When not in Woods Hole, the couple continued their research and taught generations of undergraduates at Queens College of the City University of New York. In 2002 the Colwins made an extraordinary gift of $2.3 million to the Marine Biological Laboratory to establish the Laura and Arthur Colwin Endowed Summer Research Fellowship Fund. Arthur passed a year later, in November 2003, at the age of 92.
