Albert Einstein Heads List of World’s Great Men, London Paper Says

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Albert Einstein heads the list of great men of the present day in the opinion of the London Daily Chronicle.

The newspaper compiled a list as a result of a statement made by the Archbishop of Canterbury, head of the Anglican Church, in speaking before the Institute of Journalists in London yesterday. The Archbishop declared that the world has no great personalities today.

Bernard Shaw, in commenting upon this statement, declared that there are so many outstanding personalities today that they are simply unnoticed. Shaw then gives a list of outstanding personalities among who he includes the American Jewish sculptor Jacob Epstein.
