P.A.M. Dirac, as his name is sometimes abbreviated, was one of the leading physicists of the 20th century. He received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1933.

The starting point for this profile comes from Wikipedia, but I will add more direct sources and attempt to expand the biography. As is standard on wikitree, improvements by others are welcome.


Currently, this profile and just a few others are an "island" with no link to the rest of Wikitree. It is likely that Paul Dirac has living descendants, and Eugene Wigner may as well, so it would be interesting to build from this starting point. Possible starting points for both ancestors and descendants may be found online[1].
