I've got a secret...

I've got a secret...

What if you were the greatest in the world (well...ok... at the time, JUST the U.S.!) and nobody knew who you were? 

Who am I.  No, I'm not Nikola Tesla...that's the wrong answer...try again!

Hint:  It's 1958 and this person is only 15 years old. 

Can you get it right BEFORE you look?

More hints:  His father was a German biophysicist, his mother was born in Switzerland, and his parents were married in Moscow.

His middle name was James, and he was born in Chicago.

Got it yet?
