CALENDAR OF ABSTRACTS
This listing contains abstracts of documents that belong to one of the following three cate-
gories: (1) known letters from and to Einstein (or those written or received by his secre-
tary, Ilse Einstein) that fall within this period and are excluded from the selection of texts
on grounds explained in the Editorial Method. Variants of documents that are presented as
texts do not appear here, nor do drafts that differ insignificantly from final versions that
are presented as texts; (2) letters written to the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Physics
(KWIP) board of directors and board of trustees, and to the administration of the Kaiser
Wilhelm Society (KWG); (3) aphorisms and signed dedications by Einstein, and signed
dedications to Einstein by authors of books and articles.
