BermanThe book, Love, Literature and the Quantum Atom, by Finn Aaserud and J.L. Heilbron, looks at the letters between Bohr and his family during his studies in England. Niels and Margrethe Bohr were married for 50 years until Niels’ death in 1962. Having a family or spouse’s support was an important influence in a scientist’s career. Some couples were both involved in the science profession, such as the Curies—Pierre and Marie—and the Goeppert-Mayers—Maria and Joseph. In March we are featuring images of couples from our collection. Please enjoy our featured selection of these and other famous couples.
