Einstein in the News

The verification and publication of Einstein's Theory of Relativity in 1919 brought him instant celebrity status. Einstein's receipt of the Franklin Medal is mentioned in both of the articles here. The press clipping listing "Honors Conferred by The Franklin Institute" was mailed to Einstein, along with a letter from The Franklin Institute Director's office. You can read the letter and the accompanying press clipping, as well as an article from the Magazine of the London Rotary Club, by clicking on the thumbnails at right.
