ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
Like
many
other
scholars,
we are deeply
indebted
to
Miss Helen Dukas for
the
years
of
effort she
dedicated
to
creating
and
maintaining
the Einstein
Archive.
The
Editor also had
the
pleasure
of
working
closely
with
her for
several
years
at
the Institute for Advanced
Study,
Princeton. We
are
grateful
as
well to
Dr.
Otto Nathan
for his
twenty-five
years
of
service
as a
trustee
of the Einstein Estate. This volume
is
dedicated
to
their
memory.
We
are
also indebted
to
the
many
scholars whose labors contributed
so
much
to
our
understanding
of
Einstein,
his
work,
and his
times. We cannot
attempt
to
list
them
all
with
a catalogue
of what
we
have learned from each.
Because
we
regularly
cite
primary
sources
for information
about
Einstein,
our
debt
to
these scholars
is unfortunately
often not
reflected
in
the
list
of
Literature Cited. We
thank
them
all.
Our
search
for
additional
contemporary
documents and other
primary
sources
for information used
in
this volume drew
upon
a
number of bio-
graphies
and other
secondary
sources
of information about Einstein. Chief
among
these
are:
Clark
1971,
Dukas
and
Hoffmann
1979, Fluckiger 1974,
Frank
1979, Hoffmann
1972,
Holton
1973,
Pais
1982,
Pyenson
1982,
Sanesi
1982,
Seelig
1960,
and
Trbuhovic-Gjuric
1983.
We
are very
grateful
for
the aid
given
to
us by
The Hebrew
University
of
Jerusalem. Prof. Reuven
Yaron,
our
liaison with the
University,
facilitated
access
to
the Einstein Archive and has assisted
our
work in
many
other
ways.
The American Friends of
The
Hebrew
University kindly gave
us access
to
the Einstein Archive before
it
was
moved to
Jerusalem,
for which
we
thank
Charles Bloom and Ehud
Benamy.
We
also thank Prof. Milton
Handler,
the
University's
lawyer.
The Archive
is
now
housed
in
the
Department
of
Manuscripts
and Archives of the Jewish National and
University Library.
We
thank
Dr. Mordechai
Nadav,
former head of the
department, Margot
Cohn,
Hannah
Katzenstein,
and
Kitty
Steinschneider for their
patient
and
cheerful
help.
For
granting
us access
to
the riches of
the
Einstein
Family
Correspondence
Trust,
we
would
like to
express our appreciation
to
Prof. Elizabeth
R.
Einstein,
Dr. Thomas
Einstein,
and Michael
Ferguson.
We
thank Dr. Hans
R.
Denzler of
the
ETH for
permission
to
publish
docu-
ments
deposited
at
that
institution and for assistance
in
interpreting
them.
