Joseph J. Thomson was born on 18 December 1856 in England and died on 30 August 1940.
In 1897, Thomson exhibited that cathode rays were comprised of a previously unknown negatively charged particle, and thus is known for the discovery and identification of the electron.
Thomson is also recognized as the finder of the first evidence for isotopes of a stable non-radioactive element as a portion of his examination into the structure of canal rays (positive ions) and with the creation of the mass spectrometer.
