Remembering Einstein’ honors the achievement of one of the most original and influential scientists—and creative human beings—who ever lived. To do this, we set about trying to gather reminiscences of Einstein from surviving scientists who knew him personally when they were young. We contacted dozens of individuals who we thought might have crossed paths with the great man during his last years, which were spent at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. But it’s now been 57 years since Einstein died. As one might expect, there are only a few scientists still alive who were directly acquainted with him. In this feature, we give edited versions of the reminiscences of three of them.
