Help me please: How to combine these sentences into a single sentence, using coordination, subordination or both:
Bertrand Russell was one of the very few persons.
The very few persons have received the Order of Merit.
They have received the Nobel Prize for literature.
The British government conferred the Order of Merit on Bertrand Russell.
It was conferred in 1949.
The Nobel Prize was conferred in Norway.
It was conferred in 1950.
Bertrand Russell was one of the very few persons to have received the Order of Merit as well as a Nobel Prize for literature, The British government having conferred the the former in 1949, the latter in Norway, 1950
Is the sentence to understand that Bertram Russel got the Nobel prize in litteratur in Norway?
The Nobel prize in litteratur has never been given in Norway - always in Sweden.
Norway only has the Nobel prize for Peace.
... as if the British government conferred the Nobel Prize in Norway.
Yea, alas, that's what I thought was meant
That would mean 2 (two) mistakes in one sentence
And I can do even better'n that

Thank you very much. What I've got is that: Bertrand Russell was one of the very few persons who have received the Order of Merit conferred by the British government in 1949, and the Nobel Prize for literature conferred in Norway in 1950.
I wonder if what I have wittten above may be understood as both the Order of Merit and the Nobel Prize only given to Bertand Russell one person.
