Marie Curie's daughter dies at age 102 in N.Y.

NEW YORK (AP) — Eve Curie Labouisse, a journalist who wrote a best-selling biography of her mother, the Nobel Prize-winning scientist Marie Curie, has died. She was 102.

Labouisse died Monday in her Manhattan apartment, her stepdaughter, Anne L. Peretz, said Thursday.

Her book "Madame Curie," published in 1937, chronicled the life of Labouisse's mother from her birth in Poland and education in France to her discovery — with her husband, Pierre Curie — of the radioactive elements radium and polonium.
