AIP joined in a ceremony with the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, N.J., on 14 March to mark the issuance of a new Albert Einstein 8φ stamp by the US Post Office. The ceremony took place at Alexander Hall, Princeton University, not far from the house in which Einstein lived during his later years. John A. Wheeler, C. N. Yang and others offered brief eulogies before an audience that included Margot Einstein, the physicist's daughter, Helen Dukas, his long‐time secretary and Philippe Halsman, the photographer who took the picture on which the Einstein stamp is based.
