Lab’s Nobel Laureate Perks Featured in Wall Street Journal

Winning a Nobel prize comes with perks, and Berkeley Lab has a unique honorific, according to the Wall Street Journal. The Lab “has for decades named streets for its winners. The hilly 202-acre facility is dotted with signs for a dozen such stars, including Alvarez Road, Lee Road, McMillan Road, Perlmutter Road and Segrè Road. A few streets are still available for Nobel Prize recipients, a spokeswoman said.” Article access requires a subscription, or search via Facebook.

  1. It’s an honor, not an honorific. An honorific is a title applied to a person, not to a street or something else named after a person.
