"At the beginning of the 21st century, the Nobel Committee for Chemistry is meeting to discuss the award of the first 'retro' Nobel Prize as a way of marking the centenary of the first Nobel Prize in 1901. After some discussion, the committee decides to investigate the claims of three chemists, Joseph Priestley, Antoine Lavoisier, and Carl Wilhelm Scheele associated with the discovery of Oxygen. Oxygen has a relatively simple plot. In 1777, Priestley, (British, age 44), Lavoisier (French, age 34) and Scheele (Swedish, age 35) are in Stockholm at the invitation of King Gustav III to resolve the question: 'Who discovered oxygen?'"--The Graduate Center web site.
