Nobel Prize-winner in Physics (1979), Sheldon Lee Glashow signs a philatelic envelope honoring the Cover Steam Carriage.
Philatelic Envelope signed: "Sheldon Lee Glashow", 6½x3¾. First Day Cover Steam Carriage 1866 Transportation Series, seven 4-cent Steam Carriage 1866 stamps affixed, postmarked Tucson, Arizona, January 25, 1991, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Sheldon Lee Glashow (born 1932), of Harvard University, shared the 1979 Nobel Prize in Physics with Steven Weinberg (born 1933), also of Harvard, and Abdus Salan (1926-1996) of Pakistan for discovering how at least two of the four forces of nature, electromagnetism and the weak nuclear force, arise from a unified theory and were identical when the universe was very young and very hot. This theory underlies all of particle physics and provides a framework for understanding how the early universe evolved and how the chemical elements were created. Glashow was on the faculty of Stanford University (1961-1962) and the University of California at Berkeley (1962-1966), before moving to Harvard. He is now at Boston University. Fine condition.
