Mohandas Gandhi was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1937, 1938, 1939, 1947 and, finally, a few days before he was murdered in January 1948, but but was never awarded the prize.
1937 - Robert Cecil
1938 - Nansen International Office for Refugees
1947 - Friends Service Council, American Friends Service Committee
The omission has been publicly regretted by later members of the Nobel Committee; when the Dalai Lama was awarded the Peace Prize in 1989, the chairman of the committee said that this was "in part a tribute to the memory of Mahatma Gandhi".
