New Einstein Manuscripts Unveiled at Hebrew U
On March 6, 2019, Hebrew University’s Albert Einstein Archives revealed a treasure trove of 110 Einstein manuscripts, most of which were previously unpublished. Recently acquired from a collector in the United States, the documents include 84 sheets of mathematical derivations, a handwritten appendix to an article on the Unified Theory, a letter from Einstein to his son and four letters to his lifelong friend and fellow scientist, Michele Besso. Einstein, who died in 1955, was a co-founder of Hebrew University. He bequeathed his personal and scientific writings to the university, which led to the creation of the Albert Einstein Archives.
