Marie Curie, 1926. 

Curie was the first woman to earn the Nobel Prize, and is only one of two people who have earned Nobel Prizes in two different sciences, Chemistry and Physics. Despite this, she was not voted into the Academy (by a margin of two votes). Curie’s student, Marguerite Perey would go on to make history more than fifty years later by being elected as its first woman member in 1962.
