John Von Neumann was born on December 28, 1903 in Budapest ,Hungary (Andras Frank was also born there) and died on February 8, 1957 from cancer.
He was oldest of 3 children of a banker.
He learned things very quickly when he was young. Examples are that when he was 6 he could divide two 8-digit numbers in his head, when he was eight he had already mastered calculus an at 12 he was in a graduate level in Math.
His father wanted him to be something other than a Mathematician, so he decided to go to Berlin and Zurich to study Chemistry and then he went to Budapest to study mathematics.
When he was 23 he had a degree in chemical engineering and a PhD in math. Neumann never actually needed to fall back on chemistry.
The next 3 years he went to work on the field of operator theory then went to work on the quantum theory.
