He was 92. Dr. Klug held a PhD in physics but won the Nobel in 1982 for chemistry, for applying techniques from physics and mathematics to problems of molecular structure that could be regarded as within the domain of chemistry. He was born in Zelvas, Lithuania, on Aug. 11, 1926. He was 2 when his father moved the family to Durban, South Africa. In 1945, he graduated from the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. Drawn by physics, he obtained a master's degree from the University of Cape Town, followed by a PhD in solid state physics at Britain's University of Cambridge in 1952. In 1986, Dr. Klug became director of the Cambridge molecular biology laboratory, serving until 1996)
