We dedicate this volume to the memory of Herbert S. Bailey, Jr., Martin J. Klein, and Harold McGraw, Jr., without whose decades-long foresight and devotion the Collected Papers series would not have been possible. Herb Bailey directed Princeton University Press from 1954 to 1986 and was instrumental in setting up the Einstein Papers Project, among other notable publication projects. He collaborated closely with Harold McGraw, Jr., chairman of McGraw Hill publishers, who sat on the board of trustees of Princeton University Press for twenty-five years, most of them as chairman, and generously endowed the funds necessary for continuing the editorial work of the Collected Papers of Albert Einstein. Martin Klein was one of the foremost historians of physics in the world. He was associated for more than three decades with the Einstein Papers Project and served as general editor from 1988 to 1998. His erudition and generosity of spirit were unrivaled. He is sorely missed by his colleagues and disciples.
