Einstein, math, and Gilson brothers

January 4, 2012

Well, this is fun.  Having posted a few weeks ago a picture of me in Einstein’s lap, or at his knee, or whatever, that sat on Willy’s windowsill in his office at Lincoln Lab, and then, more recently having posted about how my brother-in-law and I were in the same number theory class years before his brother and I met and married, I received today from Michael for my birthday the book Einstein: His Life and Universe, by Walter Isaacson.  And it’s not as if Michael and his family usually give me science biographies for my birthday — last year I got some beautiful bookends, other years tea paraphernalia or soaps or note cards.
