Biophysicist Aaron Klug: Durban High School student and graduate of Cape Town University won the Nobel Prize 1982

[From The Guardian]

Denounced as a 'communist' by the South African Government, Klug was refused entry into the US, continuing his studies in the UK. Later he steered the scientific community's response to major upheavals including the Human Genome Project. He died in November 2018 aged 92. Born in Lithuania, his father was a cattle drover who, with his family, emigrated to South Africa when Aaron was two years old.
