A late interview with the Scientist and Nobel Peace Prize Laureat Norman Borlaug. He died on September 10. Norman Borlaug, who died Saturday, was known as the father of the Green Revolution. His work with high-yield, disease-resistant wheat varieties is credited with saving as many as a billion people from starvation worldwide. Borlaug was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970 in recognition of his contributions to world peace through increasing food supply. Borlaug was a distinguished professor at Texas A&M University. He spoke with Nobel Laureates editor Nathan Gardels this past spring.
