My early life was spent in Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset, a small seaside resort town (population around 5000) on the west coast of England. I was born on October 31, 1925 and lived there with my parents until shortly after the end of the Second World War in 1946. No member of my family was involved in any scientific or technical activity. Indeed, I was the first to attend a university.
My father, Keith Pople, owned the principal men's clothing store in Burnham. In addition to selling clothes in the shop, he used to drive around the surrounding countryside with a car full of clothes for people in remote farms and villages. He was resourceful and made a fair income, considering the economic difficulties during the depression of the 1930s. My great-grandfather had come to Burnham around 1850 and set up a number of local businesses. He had a large family and these were split up among his children. As a result, I had relatives in many of the other businesses in the town. My grandfather inherited the clothing shop and this passed to my father when he returned from the army at end of the First World War.
My mother, Mary Jones, came from a farming background. Her father had moved from Shropshire as a young man and had farmed near Bath for most of his life. I suspect that he would have preferred to be a teacher, for he had a large collection of books and encyclopedias. He wanted my mother to be a schoolteacher, but this did not happen. Instead, she became a tutor to children in a rich family and, later, a librarian in the army during the first war. Most of her relatives were farmers in various parts of Somerset and Wiltshire so, as small children, my younger brother and I spent much time staying on farms.

John Pople Awarded Nobel Prize in Chemistry
By Mark Ratner
John A. Pople, Trustees Professor of Chemistry at Northwestern, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in December of 1998. He shared this Award with Professor Walter Kohn. It was granted largely on the basis of Pople's development and application of computational methods for understanding and predicting molecular electronic structure.
John Pople was an undergraduate in mathematics at Cambridge, where he completed his work with John Lennard-Jones on valence theory, in particular applications to the water molecule. John's thesis dealt with many aspects of water, including its response properties and bonding structures. After a junior fellowship at Cambridge, John moved to the Teddington Laboratory in England. He left England to become Professor of Chemistry at Carnegie Mellon University, before becoming affiliated with Northwestern in 1986. John's scientific career began with the study of water, and with the development of valence bond theory for describing interactions in closed shell molecules.

Pople in the early 1950s
John Anthony Pople was born in 1925 in England. His primary interests before and during his undergraduate work in post-war Britain was in mathematics. He obtained his Cambridge University, UK, in 1950 working with Lennard-Jones on valence theory, in particular applications to the water molecule. His thesis dealt with many aspects of water, including its response properties and bonding structures.
Pople had moved to Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, in 1958 and in 1986 he went to Northwestern University in Chicago, IL.
Pople's first major contribution was a theory of approximate MO calculations on pi-electron systems, similar/identical to the one developed by Rudolph Pariser and Robert G. Parr

Für ihre bahnbrechenden Beiträge zur Theoretischen Chemie wurden in diesem Jahr die Wissenschaftler John A. Pople (Evanston) und Walter Kohn (Santa Barbara) mit dem Nobelpreis für Chemie geehrt. Mit dem Nobelpreis für Physiologie und Medizin wurden die Amerikaner R. Furchgott (New York), und Ferid Murad (Houston) und Louis J. Ignarro (Los Angeles) zu gleichen Teilen ausgezeichnet, für den Nachweis, daß NO als gasförmiger Botenstoff im kardiovaskulären System wirkt.

    Theoretische Chemiker haben schon des öfteren Nobelpreise erhalten, z.B. L. Pauling, R.S. Mulliken. R. Hoffmann, K. Fukui oder R. Marcus. Ein besonders wichtiges Teilgebiet der Theoretischen Chemie, nämlich die numerische Ab-initio-Quantenchemie ist aber bisher noch nicht durch einen Nobelpreis ausgezeichnet worden.
    Die Aufgabe dieses Forschungsgebiets besteht darin, ausgehend von der Vielteilchenquantenmechanik durch aufwendige numerische Verfahren die Strukturen und Eigenschaften von Molekülen sowie ihre Wechselwirkung und chemische Reaktionen unter zu Einsatz von Computern zu berechnen. Die Bezeichnung "ab initio" bedeutet dabei, daß nur Naturkonstanten eingehen, aber (anders als bei den semiempirischen Methoden) keine an experimentelle Daten anpaßbaren Parameter.

    Professor John Pople of Northwestern Awarded Nobel Prize in Chemistry
    EVANSTON, Ill. - John A. Pople, Board of Trustees Professor of Chemistry at Northwestern University, has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. He was honored for his pioneering contributions in developing methods that can be used for theoretical studies of the properties of molecules and the chemical processes in which they are involved. "I consider this a great honor not only for myself, but for all the students who have worked with me over the years," Pople said. "I've had some wonderful students and colleagues who have assisted me in my work." The Nobel Prize Committee said of Pople: "John Pople is rewarded for developing computational methods making possible the theoretical study of molecules, their properties and how they act together in chemical reactions. These methods are based on the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics as defined by, among others, the physicist E. Schršdinger. A computer is fed with particulars of a molecule or a chemical reaction and the output is a description of the properties of that molecule or how a chemical reaction may take place. The result is often used to illustrate or explain the results of different kinds of experiment. Pople made his computational techniques easily accessible to researchers by designing the GAUSSIAN computer program. The first version was published in 1970. The program has since been developed and is now used by thousands of chemists in universities and commercial companies the world over."

Pople receives Knighthood from Queen of England
The honor of Knighthood dates back to medieval chivalry, from which also comes the method used in the United Kingdom of conferring a Knighthood by the touch of a sword known as the accolade. Knight Commander (KBE) is a distinction within the realm of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, which was founded in 1917, initially to recognize service by civilians in the First World War. This award now honors civilians and service personnel for public service or outstanding contribution to society. Pople was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1998 for his pioneering contributions in developing computational methods making possible the theoretical study of molecules, their properties, and how they act together in chemical reactions. To make his computational techniques easily accessible to researchers, Pople designed the GAUSSIAN computer program used by thousands of chemists. Pople has been a Foreign Associate of the National Academy of Sciences, a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a member of the American Chemical Society, a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a Fellow of the Royal Society, London.

Nobel Prize Winner John A. Pople
E lectronic structure calculations for inorganic compounds are an important part of the inorganic research literature, as evidenced by their inclusion in Inorganic Chimica Acta, Inorganic Chemistry and other journals covering our discipline. Therefore, it is a great pleasure to many of us that a leading pioneer in this area, John Pople, received the Nobel Prize along with Walter Kohn for work in the electronic structure of molecules. John Pople has developed ever more precise strategies for the determination of electronic structures for molecules that are large enough to interest a wide range of chemists. His early approximate methods such as CNDO and INDO are still widely used, and these have been followed by a series of much more precise computational strategies that have taken advantage of advances in computing power. His GAUSSIAN program suite, first published in 1970 and constantly developed since then, provides highly reliable information on molecular energetics and structure, and is widely employed by chemists (and non-chemists!) in university, government and industrial laboratories.

Off the back of a Laureate ...
16 October 1998 Sixth-formers at Bristol Grammar School rounded off their science lessons today by drinking a toast to a former pupil who has just been awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry. 'We hadn't any champagne,' said Eleanor Cutler (right), 'so we had to concoct some 'bubbly' for ourselves!' Nobel prizewinner John Pople, who was a boarder at the School from 1936 to 1943, is now a Professor at North-Western University in the USA. While at BGS he won numerous prizes for his mathematical ability: the Nobel Committee honoured his work in the field of quantum chemistry. 'It's a little more advanced than 'A' level,' joked teacher David Mascord, who, like John Pople, took his PhD at Cambridge. 'But many of our pupils will undoubtedly get to grips with his work at University.' 'I asked if our tutor could remember teaching Professor Pople,' said one of the Sixth-formers. 'He told me not to be so cheeky!' Ashraf El-Shanawany sent a message of congratulation on behalf of the School, where every pupil has an internet account. Professor Pople (72), who is the brother of the well-known Bristol outfitter, Keith Pople, wrote, 'I have many fond memories of my time at BGS – a great school! Actually, I abandoned chemistry after O-levels and did only Maths and Physics in the Sixth form. That shows that scientists can at least be flexible!

Hour Two: 1998 Nobel Prizes
If you could ask this year's Nobel laureates a question, what would it be? This may be your chance. Joining us on this hour of Science Friday are Horst Stormer, one of the winners of the Nobel Prize in Physics, John Pople, a winner in Chemistry, and Ferid Murad, a winner of the prize for Physiology or Medicine.

Horst Stormer, a professor at Columbia University, shares the physics prize with Robert Laughlin, a professor of physics and applied physics at Stanford University and Daniel Tsui at Princeton University. The three won the prize "for their discovery of a new form of quantum fluid with fractionally charged excitations." In a powerful magnetic field, the group found, electrons can condense to form a kind of quantum fluid related to ones seen in superconductivity and in liquid helium. By studying these fluids, researchers may be able to make new discoveries about how and why matter is what it is.

Computational Chemistry Comes of Age With Nobel Prize
by Peter Taylor, San Diego Supercomputer Center and Balaji Veeraraghavan, National Center for Supercomputing Applications
The emergence of computational science has added a third manner of performing scientific research. The existing methods were experiment and theory, closely coupled: without theory, there is no way to systematize and analyze the results of experiments; without experiments there is no point in theorizingtheory becomes philosophy, rather than science. Computational approaches provide a third way, often allowing faster and more elaborate tests of theory than would be possible by experiment, but also allowing a much more sophisticated analysis of experiment than theory alone could provide. In this sense we have a tripod: three legs, which provide a much more stable base than two. This year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry, awarded to Walter Kohn and John Pople, affirms and legitimizes the status of the third leg of that tripod. As scientists working to extend the uses of computational science, we are very pleased that these chemists have been recognized at the highest level for their theoretical and computational contributions in a field whose outstanding contributors have long been laboratory chemists.
