I. I. Rabi won the 1944 Nobel prize in physics. Born in Austria-Hungary, he was brought to the United States at an early age by his family. His work spanned radar, nuclear magnetic resonance, and even the essential component of microwave ovens.
His parents were David Rabi and Janet Teig.
He married Helen Newmark in 1926, and had daughters Nancy Elizabeth (1929) and Margaret Joella (1934). Another reference gives the daughters' names as Nancy Lichtenstein and Margaret Beels, and mentions 9 descendants.
The first daughter is referred to as Helen Elizabeth on wikipedia, but this conflicts with other sources, which give her first name as Nancy.
