Albert Einstein

… died 61 years ago today, April 18, 1955.

My office was a block from this statue for several years. On occasion I would walk over and visit Einstein. I didn’t learn any physics but I always felt smarter.

The statue is by sculptor Robert Berks, known also for his bust of JFK at the Kennedy Center. Einstein was dedicated in 1979 at the National Academy of Sciences, 22nd and Constitution in Washington.

I took the photo in 2014.
