Gary Hylander, PhD & “Einstein’s Letter”

Main Library, Community Room

Sep 11

Wed 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

Now living in the United States, Albert Einstein in October, 1939, sent an urgent letter to President Franklin Roosevelt recommending that American scientists should begin work on developing an atomic bomb. It was Einstein’s fame and the outbreak of World War II in Europe that captured Roosevelt’s attention. The Manhattan Project followed.
