      18 April 1955 - I was only a small child, but I remember my grandfather, an engineer for White/Westinghouse, read this headline and began to cry. "We had so much more we needed to learn from him," he said.

      On 17 April 1955, Albert Einstein experienced internal bleeding caused by the rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm, which had previously been reinforced surgically by Dr. Rudolph Nissen in 1948. Einstein refused surgery, saying: "I want to go when I want. It is tasteless to prolong life artificially. I have done my share, it is time to go. I will do it elegantly." He died in Princeton Hospital early the next morning at the age of 76, having continued to work until near the end.

      New York World-Telegram, The Sun, April 18, 1955: “Dr. Einstein is Dead”. Dr. Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist who revolutionized physics with his discovery of the general theory of relativity and the famous equation on energy: E = mc2 making him the father of modern physics. For his services to theoretical physics, in particular for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, he was awarded the “1921 Nobel Prize in Physics.”
