Albert Einstein was born on March 14, in Ulm. He spent his childhood in Munich where his family owned a small machine shop.

By the age of twelve, Einstein had taught himself Euclidean Geometry. His family moved to Milan, where he stayed for a year, and he used it as an excuse to drop out of school, which bored him. Einstein graduated in , by studying the notes of a classmate since he did not attend his classes out of boredom, again.

His teachers did not like him and would not recomend him for a position in the University. For two years, Einstein worked as a substitute teacher and a tutor before getting a job, in , as an examiner for a Swiss patent office in Bern.

In , he received his doctorate from the University of Zurich for a theoretical dissertation on the dimension of molecules. Einstein also published three theoretical papers of central importance to the development of 20th Century physics. The first was entitled "Brownian Motion," and the second "Photoelectric Effort," which was a revolutionary way of thinking and contradicted tradition. No one accepted the proposals of the first two papers. Then the third one was published in and called "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies.

Virtually no one understood or supported Einstein's argument. Einstein left the patent office in and received his first academic appointment at the University of Zurich in In , he moved to a German speaking university in Prague, but returned to Swiss National Polytechnic in Zurich in His chief patron in those early days was German physicist Max Planck and lent much credibility to Einstein's work.

Einstein began working on generalizing and extending his theory of relativity, but the full general theory was not published until In , he predicted that starlight would bend in the vicinity of a massive body, such as the sun. This theory was confirmed during a solar eclipse and cause Einstein to become world renowned after the phenomenon. Einstein received be Nobel Prize in Physics in With his new fame, Einstein attempted to further his own political and social views.

His support of Zionism earned him attacks from both Anti-Semitic and right wing groups in Germany. Once there, he renounced his stand on pacifism in the face of Nazi rising power. In he collaborated with other physicists in writing a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt informing him of the possibility that the Nazis may in fact be attempting to create an atomic bomb.

The letter bore only Einstein's signature but lent credence to the letter and spurred the U. Einstein became an American citizen in After the war, Einstein was active in international disarmament as well as world government. He was offered the position of President of Israel but turned the honor down. Letters to Solovine.

Letters to Solovine: 1906-1955

As always, I was delighted by your last letter. As for the changes proposed by you, I am in complete agreement. Carl Seelig is a good man. But he takes the task that he has undertaken far too seriously, alas, with the result that he bothers everyone. Tell him whatever you think best and pass over whatever you wish in silence.
