ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
The editors have benefited
greatly
from
suggestions
made
by
John
Stachel,
the former editor of
The
Collected
Papers,
that
helped improve
this volume.
We
extend
our
thanks
to
the members of
the
Editorial
Advisory
Board and the
Executive
Committee,
who discussed
plans
for the volume and made
com-
ments
on
the
manuscript,
and
to
Klaus
Hentschel,
Karl
von Meyenn,
Helmut
Rechenberg,
and Nathan
Reingold,
who
gave
it
a
close
reading.
We
also wish
to
thank The Hebrew
University
of Jerusalem for
granting permission to pub-
lish materials from its
holdings
and for
making
the Albert Einstein Archives
available
to
the editors.
The
preparation
of this volume
was
made
possible
in
part by grants
from
the National Science Foundation and from the National Endowment for the
Humanities,
both
independent
federal
agencies,
as
well
as
from the Alfred
P.
Sloan Foundation and the Horace
W.
Goldsmith Foundation.
Support
was
also
provided by
the
following European
institutional
sources:
the Swiss Na-
tional Science
Foundation,
the
Dr.
Tomalla Foundation
(Liechtenstein),
the
Canton of
Aargau
in
Switzerland,
and the Pieter Zeeman Foundation
(The
Netherlands).
We
are grateful
to
Giuseppe Castagnetti,
Verena
Larcher,
Peter
Nabholz,
and Josef
Poläcek,
without whose assistance the documentation of much in
this volume
could
not
have been assembled. Nabholz and Larcher
were
in-
strumental in
identifying
and
locating
material
in
Switzerland,
Castagnetti
in
Berlin and in the former German Democratic
Republic,
and Poläcek in the li-
braries and archives of
Prague.
Thanks
are
also
due
to
Ze'ev
Rosenkranz,
the
Bern Dibner Curator of the Albert Einstein Archives
at
The Hebrew Univer-
sity,
and
to
Hannah
Katzenstein,
who
provided us
with invaluable informa-
tion
on
the
original manuscripts
of Einstein's
unpublished papers
and
correspondence,
as
did Beat
Glaus,
Leiter der Wissenschaftshistorischen
Sammlungen
of the ETH
Library,
on
holdings
in Switzerland.
The assistance of the
following persons
in
producing
this
volume is also
