New Book on the Institute for Advanced Study

A new "Images of America" book, the Institute for Advanced Study by Linda Arntzenius is now available at the Regulator Bookstore in Princeton.

Oswald Veblen (on the right) is included on the cover photo with Einstein. The book includes this text under a photo of the Veblens: "Veblen loved the outdoors and promoted a wooded site in Princeton Township for the institute. The 'wood-chopping professor' would lead groups of IAS members on brush-clearing expeditions in the woods."
