To Richard Wettstein Berlin, 21 February 1920 I have already been asked about Mr. Ehrenhaft by Prof. Wegscheider, and he may well have made use of my letter. My view is the following. Ehrenhaft has, through his indefatigable efforts, pointed experimental physics onto new paths. The reason why E. is being rejected by so many physicists is that his theoretical interpretation of his own experiments are being frowned upon. I too am convinced that he is on the wrong track in this regard. Nonetheless I am in support of E. obtaining the position. He is an energetic, pro- ductive mind who will always breathe new life into the institute. He can conduct experiments and is tirelessly diligent. He can be pardoned for his little bit of mono- mania.
