Profile of Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein was famously rumpled and frizzy-haired, and over time his image has become synonymous with absent-minded genius… He sent a famous letter to U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt in 1939, warning that Germany was developing an atomic bomb and urging Allied research toward the same goal… Albert Einstein married Mileva Maric in 1903. They had two sons: Hans Albert (b. 1904) and Eduard (b. 1910). They also had a daughter born before their marriage, Leiserl (b. 1902). She apparently was given for adoption or died in infancy. Mileva and Albert were divorced in 1914… He married his cousin Elsa Löwenthal in 1919, and they remained married until her death in 1936… The Institute for Advanced Studies has no formal link to Princeton University; however, according the IAS website, the two institutions “have many historic ties and ongoing relationships”… The Albert Einstein College of Medicine opened in New York City in 1955. It is part of Yeshiva University. Albert Einstein did not create the school, but gave his permission to have his name used.
