LUIS W. ALVAREZ
Autograph Note signed by the winner of the 1968 Nobel Prize in Physics
ANS: "L. W. Alvarez", 5½x1¼ ruled sheet. No place, no date. To unknown recipient. In full: "Sorry, but I don't have any". Luis Walter Alvarez (1911-1988) won the 1968 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his decisive contributions to elementary particle physics, in particular the discovery of a large number of resonance states, made possible through his development of the technique of using hydrogen bubble chamber and data analysis". Alvarez, who worked on the Manhattan Project, was aboard the Enola Gay when it dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. With his son, Walter, a geology professor, Alvarez developed in 1980 the then revolutionary theory that an asteroid striking the Earth killed off the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Irregularly cut. Tails from two letters (unknown hand) show at top. Overall, fine condition.
