Biography | show moreshow less
Albert Einstein (1879-1955) developed the theories used to build models of the universe.  Einstein's first major contribution, the "Special Theory of Relativity", was published in 1905. The "General Theory of Relativity" followed in 1916. He won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 "for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect". Einstein renounced his German citizenship and resigned from the Prussian Academy of Sciences. When Hitler came to power in January 1933, Einstein's property was seized and a price put on his head. His books were among those burned publicly on May 10, 1933. Einstein tried to help others escape Nazi Germany.  Einstein took the position of Professor of Theoretical Physics at Princeton University in 1933 and remained at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton until his death.
