Einstein Sculpture May Go to Germany; Americans Not Interested

A sculptured memorial to the late Professor Albert Einstein, done by an American artist, may go to West Germany because no Americans have come forth to finance the memorial, it was announced here today by the sculptor, Robert Berks. The memorial is in the form of a disc, 21 feet in diameter, at one side of which sits a replica of the late scientist with a book in one hand.

According to Mr. Berks, West Germans have offered. $180, 000 for the sculpture but no one in the United States has offered to purchase the work and erect it. Mr.Berks said that, thus far, no memorial has been put up to Dr. Einstein in this country, though his death occurred in 1955.
