J. ROBERT OPPENHEIMER
He signs a check over to the Institute for Advanced Study.
Partly Printed Check endorsed in holograph on verso: "Deposit to the/account of the/Institute for/Advanced Study/J. Robert Oppenheimer", 6x2¾. Check for $25.00 payable to Oppenheimer, signed by Howard W. Davis, Berkeley, Calif., March 17, 1956. Drawn on the Crocker-Anglo National Bank. As a theoretical physicist at UC-Berkeley, J. Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967) did groundbreaking research on nuclear physics, quantum mechanics and stellar spectroscopy. Oppenheimer was the Director of the Manhattan Project, which developed the atomic bomb, at Los Alamos, New Mexico, from 1942-1945. From 1947-1966, he was the Director of the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, New Jersey. Oppenheimer lost his security clearance in 1954, a result of both his many left-wing associations and - probably - his opposition to the hydrogen bomb and to the nuclear arms race. A decade later, and shortly before his death, President Johnson conferred on him the Enrico Fermi Award, signaling his political rehabilitation. Cancellation holes slightly touch "Advanced" and "J. Robert" of signature. Rubber stamp on verso touches most of signature, which is completely visible. Overall, fine condition.
