Comment: Very few nominations were received for the Prize of 1915. Therefore, the Nobel Committee decided at a meeting on Feb.1, 1915, to carry over a number of nominated candidates from the previous year, with members of the Nobel Committee acting as nominator (see entries 1915-12 through 1915-22).
