ABSTRACT
Background information on Chinese American physicist Tsung-dao Lee is presented. The author reviews how Lee specialized in high-energy particle physics. He shared the Nobel Prize with Chen Ning Yang in 1957 for their discovery of particle decay reactions that violated the law of conservation of parity. Information on Lee's early life and education is reviewed.
