CALENDAR 1920 5 8 5
preparation of the reproduction of Hermann Struck’s por-
trait of Einstein until they hear further from Struck, who is
currently in London. Acknowledges receipt of 3,229.95 M
as honorarium for 9th edition. [42 050].
July 11 2-page ALS from Hedwig Kohn. Thanks for the promise
that Einstein will propose a further sum for the quartz spec-
trograph above the already allocated 7,000 M, but she can-
not give an exact price because of inflation. GyBP, I. Abt.,
Rep. 34, Nr. 7, Mappe Kohn. [77 806].
2-page TLS from Alfred Magnus. Reports on the spending
of the 3,000 M allotted by KWIP. Lacking an additional 500
M needed for purchase of control resistances currently cost-
ing 1,600 M, offers to return the balance of 1,000 M. GyBP,
I. Abt., Rep. 34, Nr. 8, Mappe Magnus. [77 865].
Statement to the German Central Committee for Foreign
Relief (Vol. 7, Doc. 40).
after July 11 Statement on the Quaker Relief Effort (Vol. 7, Doc. 41).
July 12 3-page TLS to Friedrich Schmidt-Ott. Cover letter to the
minutes of the meeting of KWIP board of directors of 8
March 1920, and list of financial aid granted so far (1918–
spring of 1920). GyBP, I. Abt., Rep. 34, Nr. 13. [77 699].
1-page ALS from Leonhard Grebe. Hopes to buy a fiber
electrometer with the 2,000 M awarded by the KWIP. He
had already sent his manuscript on the measurements to
Albert Bachem. [6 048].
2-page TLS from Hugo Seemann. Attaches a list of items
purchased with the 3,000 M from the KWIP (see 28 April
1920, in Vol. 9, Calendar). An X-ray spectrograph has been
built. Applies for a larger sum. GyBP, I. Abt., Rep. 34,
Nr. 10, Mappe Seemann. [77 624].
1-page TLS from Cornelis van Vollenhoven. After having
received royal confirmation, the Leyden University Fund
appoints Einstein Special Professor. A further royal authori-
zation is needed, as Einstein does not hold a doctoral degree
from a Dutch university. This process will take no longer
than two months. [29 300].
July 13 1-page TLS from Wilhelm Hallwachs. Asks for conditions
on spending KWIP money for mercury. GyBP, I. Abt.,
Rep. 34, Nr. 4, Mappe Hallwachs. [78 070].
