Thank you to one of our readers, Issachar Una, who contacted us with the identification of the people in the mystery photograph (Fall 2001 Newsletter, at the bottom of this web page). He consulted with Ze'ev Rosenkranz, curator of the Albert Einstein Archives at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to verify the identity of some of the people. The occasion was the presentation of an Honorary Doctorate to Einstein from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, March 15, 1949. The photograph was taken at Einstein's home, and the people are:
