Eve Denise Curie Labouisse was a French and American writer, journalist and pianist. Eve Curie was the youngest daughter of Marie Sklodowska-Curie and Pierre Curie. Her sister was Irene Joliot-Curie and her brother-in-law Frederic Joliot-Curie. Eve was the only member of her family who did not choose a career as a scientist and did not win a Nobel Prize, although her husband Henry Richardson Labouisse, Jr. did collect the Nobel Peace Prize in 1965 on behalf of UNICEF. She worked as a journalist and authored her mother's biography Madame Curie and a book of war reportage, Journey Among Warriors. From the 1960s she committed herself to work for UNICEF, providing help to children and mothers in developing countries.
