It depends on the category. The Laureate (winner) in Physics was Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen; in Chemistry, Jacobus H. van 't Hoff; in Physiology or Medicine, Emil von Behring; in Literature, Sully Prudhomme; and in Peace the award was shared by Henry Dunant and Frederic Passy. These were all in 1901. The first Laureates in Economics were Ragnar Anton Kittil Frisch and Jan Tinbergen in 1969.
