John Forbes Nash beginning background.
John Forbes Nash Jr was born on June 13, 1928, in West Virginia. He would be 82 years old when he celebrates his birthday on June 13, 2010.
Nash’s father was an electrical engineer and his mother was a school teacher. Nash’s parents encouraged him to read and study beyond his school curriculum.
Nash went on to study at the former Carnegie Institute of Technology, which has been since renamed as the Carnegie Mellon University. Nash was recognized as a genius by his former professor and based on his recommendation, Nash was offered a scholarship at Princeton University.
Nash’s studies and research were productive in creating many new theories in economics and mathematics.
John Nash had a girlfriend and relationship that began sometime in 1951. His girlfriend was Eleanor Stier. Ms Stier gave birth to their son, John David Stier. John Nash had considered marrying Stier but he changed his mind and split with her.
In 1955, Nash was working in Massachusetts when he met Alicia Lopez-Harrison de Larde. Larde was a physics student from El Salvador. Nash thought he shared more in common with Larde so he married her in Feb 1957.
In 1959, Larde sent Nash to a mental institution to get treatment for schizophrenia. Larde was pregnant with their baby and she gave birth while Nash was still in his mental hospital.
Nash remained in his hospital for about one year while his baby son was nameless. Alicia Larde wanted Nash to be discharged and returned home to decide on the name of his son.
John Forbes Nash was eventually well enough to be discharged. He saw his son and helped to name him John Charles Martin Nash.
Nash’s brilliant academic career was troubled by his schizophrenia, which haunted him in the years when his mind was most productive. Nash tried many treatments in many hospitals, all over Europe and the US. Drugs and experimental treatments had adverse effects on him and his brain. Eventually, Nash refused all medical treatments and retreated into a community that could accept his eccentricities.
Nash received many prizes and honorary degrees in recognition of his work.
