What Einstein left behind


Einstein died on 18 April, 1955. A PhysicsWorld blog post relates how a LIFE magazine photographer was sent to Princeton to cover the event.  But instead of going to the hospital, where Einstein had died of heart failure, photographer Ralph Morse went to the physicist’s home with a camera and a case of scotch, offered the superintendent there some scotch, and got access to Einstein’s office. Last week LIFE published ten touching photographs from The Day Einstein Died.
