Following are corrections to the Oral History interview of Gabor Miskolczy (January 27, 2005, page 8):
Miskolczy was born in Szeged, in the south of Hungary, bordering the former Yugoslavia. He was sent to boarding school in Sarospatak, on the Ukraine border, at age ten.
His stepfather, Albert Szent-Gyorgyi was a medical doctor whose research included both chemistry and biology, before the field of biochemistry began. His Nobel Prize was for discovering Vitamin C, which he isolated from Hungarian paprika.
At MIT, Miskolczy was a research assistant at the Gas Turbine Laboratory. He was the first full-time employee of Thermo Electron (the founder's brother worked part-time).
