Stanford University Press

After the Second World War, James Franck launched an appeal on the issue of an inadequate supply of food in the German population. He joined other prominent American Jewish refugees in a public call for such humanitarian aid, pointing out that many children and innocents were suffering. The year 1946 brought Franck much personal happiness and scientific success. He continued his research in photosynthesis and eventually, his interests extended beyond photosynthesis. A few years later, he was awarded the Max Planck Medal, the highest German distinction in physics. The Boston Academy of Arts and Sciences also awarded him their Rumford medal.
