1909: Paul Painlevé

Painleve was a French mathematician and politician who made significant contributions to the theory of nonlinear differential equation, and was several times prime minster of France.

1905: Henri Poincaré

Poincare was one of the greatest mathematicians of the late 19th and early 20th century. Among many other contributions, he laid the foundations of algebraic topology and chaotic dynamical systems, contributed to the analysis of differential equations and relativity theory, and posed the Poincare conjecture.
