Peace and Dynamite

Alfred Bernhard Nobel is well-known as the namesake of the Nobel Peace prize. He also invented dynamite ("explosive nitroglycerine") in 1867 (Patent #78,317). This was one of 355 patents he was awarded.

One generally doesn't equate peace with dynamite, but when you consider the usefulness of dynamite to the mining industry I suppose eventually one can equate dynamite with "worldly peace."
