The first posthumous Nobel Prize was awarded to Sweden's Erik Karlfeldt in 1931 for Literature. The only posthumous Nobel Peace Prize was given in 1961 to the youngest United Nations Secretary-General, Dag Hammarskjöld. In 1996, economist William Vickrey died before the presentation ceremony while Ralph Steinman was given 2011 Medicine Nobel posthumously as the Committee wasn't aware of his death.
