This includes people who werent actually working there when they won. By your definition, Berkeley probably has 200+ nobel prize laureates.

WikiAnswers - Which US college has the most Nobel Peace Prize winners

I mean I can post link after link and you still won't get it.
Any link that has the word 'wiki' attached to it is questionable as far as accuracy.

Hey, why not ask the Nobel Website directly?
Nobel Laureates and Universities

And as far as hating Chicago, just because I point out an error doesnt automatically mean I hate anything.

No need to get defensive.

Exactly.

NYC is in a class of its own.

Chicago and L.A. follow closely behind.

Everything else is further down the list... but Houston is certainly above places like Atlanta and Miami IMO. Especially in today's economy...

I think this list has a lot to do with publicity as well. Houston dosen't get much attention from the media unless it's a hurricane headed our way, also the fact that it is located in Texas could be another negative for us. Houston is still a newer city than cities like ATL, and MIA when you think about history and how much the US and the world is exposed to Houston.
Not Miami. Miami was barely a city going into the 20th century. It didn't really start to explode until the 1920s. Houston was found a good 60 years before Miami, I believe.

I believe Berkeley has 61 if you count the Nobel laureates by University affiliation.

1. University of Cambridge, UK- 83
2. University of Chicago, USA- 82
3. Columbia, USA-77
4. MIT, USA-73
5. University of Paris-59
6. University of Oxford, UK-57
7. Stanford, USA-50
8. Berkeley, USA-61 (47 according to Berkeley's Home Page)

I meant to say the entire UC System. Besides, my point is I think its more relevent to only count those who were actually working at the school at the time they won the award. How nonsensical it is to include someone who went there for only a brief time.
