Short biography
Eve Curie was the younger daughter of Marie and Pierre Curie, co-discoverers of radium and recipients of the Nobel Prize in physics and chemistry. She originally trained as a concert pianist and as a young woman performed throughout France and Belgium. She later wrote music criticism for several French periodicals and went on to become the publisher of the French newspaper Paris-Press. After her mother's death in 1934, Eve Curie researched and wrote her biography, Madame Curie (1937), which became a bestseller and is considered a classic. It was adapted into a Hollywood film in 1943. During World War II, Eve Curie went to London to work for the Free French government in exile. She later served with the women’s division of Gen. Charles de Gaulle’s army in Europe. Later she settled in the USA. In the early 1950s, she was a special adviser to the Secretary-General of NATO. In 1954, she married Henry R. Labouisse, a diplomat and the executive director of UNICEF.
