Albert Einstein may have been one of the most fascinating minds of the 20th century, but he still faced intense racism from anti-Semitic groups in Germany throughout the 1930s. In 1933 he took a trip to America to see if he could find a better place to live, and although he visited Pasadena, California he found a better with in Princeton, New Jersey.

He returned to Germany in ’33 but he didn’t stay long. In October of the same year he returned to America with his wife Elsa, his secretary Helen Dukas, and his assistant Dr. Walther Mayer. He settled in Princeton with his family and began work in the “Institute for Advanced Study” where he stayed until his death in 1955.

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
