December 10, 1964: Martin Luther King, Jr. was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

We are honored to provide access to Martin Luther King Jr.’s dissertation in the new ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global (PQDT Global).

At 35 years old, he was the youngest man, of any race, and only the second black person, to ever receive the honor. Upon notification that he had been awarded the Nobel Prize, King was quick to declare that he would dedicate the $54,000 in prize money to furthering the efforts of the civil rights movement.

Be sure to also explore other graduate works from authors such as Carl Sagan and diverse topics, including rock music influences such as Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix, plus 2013 Nobel Laureates included in ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global.

As the world’s most comprehensive collection of dissertations and theses, PQDT Global brings together content from the world’s premier universities—from the Ivy League to the Russell Group. PQDT Global is projected to grow to more than 2 million full-text works and 3.5 million A&I records by 2015.

PQDT Global is developed by the same team of scholars and technologists that created ProQuest Dissertations & Theses (PQDT). Originally created in 1939, PQDT now encompasses more than one quarter of a billion pages with nearly 3 million doctoral dissertations and theses. It is the official off-site repository for dissertations and theses for the United States Library of Congress. And, PQDT is searched over 200 million times a year by researchers from more than 3,000 leading academic institutions worldwide.
