TRUTH !!
Though Lewis turned down a Nobel Prize in 1925* He accepted the honor in 1930,
becoming the first American to do so.


*
There is some commentary to the effect that Shaw turned down
the prize and its SEK 118,165 award, yet a formal presentation
speech was given by Per Hallstroem, Chairman of the
Nobel Committee, and the British Ambassador, Sir Arthur Grant
Duff, appeared and gave Shaw's thanks at the award ceremony in
Stockholm on December 10, 1925.
In any event, Shaw was hardly a grateful recipient.
He had this to say about Alfred Nobel:
"I can forgive Alfred Nobel for inventing dynamite, but only a
fiend in human form could have invented the Nobel Prize."
