Page numbers followed by a lowercase “n” indicate endnotes to Einstein documents. Italic
page numbers indicate references to front matter or to editorial notes, including their foot-
notes. References are collected under the appropriate English heading. Certain institutions,
organizations, and concepts that have no standard English translation are listed under their
German designation (with cross references from an English translation). “Albert Einstein”
is abbreviated to “AE” in subentries. Correspondence cited in editorial material is listed al-
phabetically by correspondent/recipient following the words “correspondence with” (refer-
ring to a group of letters exchanged with AE) and/or “letter from/to” (referring to specific
letters). A separate index of citations follows the main index.
