Sir; In the obituary of Professor Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson (1 October) it is stated that Todmorden Secondary School is probably the only school to have educated two Nobel prizewinners. There is at least one other. Two pupils of the Lutheran Gymnasium (grammar school) in Budapest received a Nobel prize: Eugene Wigner (physics, 1963) and John Harsanyi (economics, 1994).
