Download PDF for this date

Professor Albert Einstein will be invited to lecture at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1933 on the practical workings of his theory of relativity, according to an announcement just made by Dr. W. F. G. Swann, a member of the Science Advisory Committee of the World’s Fair.

It is intended that the lecture should be in the form of a talking motion picture. Such a lecture would supplement an exhibit showing some of the problems aroused by the Einstein theory, declared Dr. Swann.
