Hebrew U. Gains Einstein Archives

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The Albert Einstein Ar-
chives, containing 43,000
documents including much
of the scientist's corre-
spondence and more than 30
unpublished scientific-
manuscripts, has been
transferred to its ulti-
mate home at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem.
Scholars at the university
will immediately begin
work with the papers, said
Prof. Reuven Yaron, who
has overall charge of the
archives.
Since Einstein's death in
1955, the papers were
housed at the Institute for
Advanced Studies in
Princeton, N.J., where the
scientist spent the last
years of his life. They were
flown to Jerusalem a week
ago.
According to ,Yaron,

the Hebrew University
will undertake the pre-
paration of a detailed
catalogue of the contents
of the archive which,
he said, he hoped will be
published by Princeton
University Press.
The Princeton University
Press is editing and publish-
ing the Einstein papers, a
project which is now a joint
effort witlithe Hebrew Uni-
versity. The Hebrew Uni-
versity plans a full program
involving the papers, con-
sidered by many to be one of
the greatest scientific, cul-
tural and historical collec-
tions extant.
The archives will be
housed in a special section
of the Jewish National and
University Library, located
at the university's Givat
Ram campus in Jerusalem.
"We will pursue a liberal
policy of access to the pap-
ers," Yaron said, adding
that most work would be
done from photocopies,
while access to the original
documents are also avail-
able at Princeton Univer-
sity.
The university, he said,
will continue the process
of acquiring additional
material for the archives,
either copies or originals
or original documents
and in some cases will
purchase the originals.
Plans are also being
made, he said, for a major
Einstein exhibition in April
1985, marking the 30th an-
niversary of Einstein's
death.
Einstein gave several im-
portant documents to the
university during his
lifetime, including the orig-
inal manuscript of the 1916
article outlining his theory
of general relativity.
The 43,000 documents
which arrived in Jerusalem
include scientific and non-
scientific material, with the
non-scientific items out-

numbering the scientific by
a margin of about three to
two. The great majority of
the material has never been
published, including most of
the correspondence.
Einstein corresponded
with many of the world's
leading figures — fellow
scientists, political lead-
ers, philosophers. The
archive's scientific
correspondence includes
letters to and from such
personalities as Niels
Bohr, Max Planck and H.
A. Lorentz.
The archives contain
more than 30 unpublished
scientific manuscripts, both
complete and incomplete, as
well as several notebooks
from his student days in
Zurich.
An incomplete list of the
world figures with whom
Einstein corresponded and
whose letters are found in
the archives includes Sig-
mund Freud, Mohandas
Gandhi, Albert Schweitzer,
President Franklin
Roosevelt and Eleanor
Roosevelt and George Ber-
nard Shaw.

Among the historic
documents in the archives is
a copy of Einstein's famous
1939 letter to President
Roosevelt warning him of
the miliatary potential of
atomic energy, as well as
the original of Roosevelt's
answer, informing Einstein
that he was convening a
board to investigate the
situation, a step which led
to the Manhattan Project
-and the eventual develop-
ment of the first atomic
bomb.
Einstein identified
closely with his Jewish
heritage and was active
on behalf of the Zionist
movement. The archives
include a large amount
of correspondence with
Chaim Weizmann. He
was closely associated
with the development of

Insanity Plea for Attacker
on Temple Mount Is Rejected

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The state prosecutor re-
jected the insanity plea of
Alan Harry Goodman and
charged the 38-year-old
American-born bachelor in
court with premeditated
murder in a shooting ram-
page on the Temple Mount
in the Old City of Jerusalem
last April 11 in which two
Arabs were killed and more
than a dozen wounded.
Goodman, who had re-
cently immigrated to Israel
from Baltimore, was seized
by police after he opened
fire on Moslem worshippers
with an Israel army-issue
automatic rifle.
He based his defense on
psychiatric testimony that
he was a paranoid schizop-
hrenic. But Jerusalem Dis-
trict Attorney Michael
Kirsh said his statements to
police after his apprehen-
sion did not square with
that plea.
According to Kirsh,
Goodman told police that
his actions were politi-

cally motivated and that
he had conceived the at-
tack as long ago as 1978
as "revenge" for the kil-
ling of Israelis in the ter-
rorist coastal road mas-
sacre that year.
Only later did Goodman
claim to be the "Messiah"
and express other delusions,
the district attorney said.

the Hebrew University
and served on its board of
governors for several
years.
He was honorary
president of the American
Friends of the Hebrew Uni-
versity, and the archives
contains correspondence re-
flecting his deep concern for
the organization's activity
on behalf of the university
in the United States.
Germany's persecution of
Jews in Europe deeply af-
fected Einstein. One letter
sent to Eleanor Roosevelt in
July 1941, pointed out the
difficulties faced by Euro-
peans trying to find a haven
in the United States.
The letter told her of a
"policy now being pursued
in the State Department
which makes it all but im-
possible to give refuge in
America to many worthy
persons who are the victims
of fascist cruelty in Europe."
The archives contains her
reply stating that she had
brought the letter to the at-
tention of her husband.
Yaron is a professor of
Roman Law and ancient
Near East Law. From 1967
to 1971, he served a 3dean of
the faculty of law r‘t the He-
brew Universi y and from
1973 to 1978 aL as director
of the Jewish N ional and
University Libr ry,. which
serves as both t _e univer-
sity's main libraiy and as a
national repository similar
to the Library of Congress.
