Szent-Gyorgyi and his laboratory staff at Szeged were photographed the year that they mass-produced vitamin C from paprika.
This photograph was used in a lecture entitled "Albert Szent-Gyorgyi; Scientist and Humanist" given by Andrew G. Szent-Gyorgyi at Marosvasarhely, Hungary on April 23, 1999.
The caption in the biography, after p. 44: Front row (seated): Margaret Zetenyi, secretary; Bela Gozsi, pharmacological chemist; Albert with favorite dog; Dr. Erno Annau, senior research associate. Second row: Edit Joo, laboratory aide; Dr. Joseph Svirbely, research guest from USA; Ilona Banga; Mrs. Nelly Szent-Gyorgyi.
