These are famous actors/actresses, and creators who are gone, yet who'se memory still lives on.
As a small boy Einstien was self-sufficient and thoughtful. At first he was a slow talker taking time to piece together what he wanted to say. He liked building card houses and his sister remembered the concentration and preservierance that went into each one. Although he got good grades )(outstanding in mathmatics) Einstien hated the high school he was sent to in Munich and quit school at 15 yet continued his home studies. Some say that being a Jewish boy in a catholic school was hard for Einstien or resistance to authoritarian German teachers. It was at the Swiss college in Aarua that his focus turned to the theory of electromagnatism. Later after graduating he realized Physics was his true study, yet if not for the notes of Marcelle Grossman a friend who spent his time in the classes while Einstien was in the lab or libraury then he wouldn't have come so far. After struggling he got a job at the patent office in Bern this gave him the freedom he needed to publish scientific papers. He and a few other colleges formed the Olympia Academy mocking the official bodies that dominated science. He is said to have three ofspring with a Serbian woman Mileva Maric who he married in 1903 yet his mind for science pushed her away. He later married his cousin Elsa Lowenthal. It wasn't until september of 1909 that he came up with the formula that would lead to the equation of E=mc2. This lead him to explore the pysics of gravity and use mathmatics that he thought he would never use. He predicted the appearance of stars as relative to an eclipse. This made him reconized as a symbol of new pshysics.Einstien was a very political man as well and signed on as a member of the German Democratic Party on Nov 16 1918 becoming a German citizen, and in 1922 he joined the German League for human rights and was attracted to a numer of their causes, becoming a defender of sorts. Also in 1922 he accepted the Nobel Prize in physics. He left Germany in 1932 a bit befor Hitler came into power, he renounced his citizenship. He came to the United States and to the Institute for Advanced Study in Princton in October 1933.
