Download PDF for this date

Prof. Albert Einstein was named as winner of the 1948 One World Award, according to an announcement yesterday by Jacques F. Ferrand, chairman of the award committee.

Ferrand, who revealed that the selection of Einstein was unanimous, said he was chosen because he “brought to the world more than a new conception of cosmos” and because he expressed, long before the rise of Nazism, “his world citizenship and his hatred of militarism, dictatorship and violence.”
