    Description

    Niels Bohr Signed Photograph. 3.25" x 5", no place; no date. Matte black and white photograph with white border. Signed in blue ink, "Niels Bohr."

    Niels Bohr (1885-1962) was a Danish physicist. He received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1922 for his work applying the quantum concept to the problem of atomic and molecular structure. Forced to flee Denmark after the Nazi occupation in 1943, he settled in Sweden briefly before moving to London. Bohr worked at Los Alamos on the Manhattan Project under the pseudonym Nicholas Baker and spent the next two years flying between London, Washington and Los Alamos. He recognized early on how their work would complicate international relations and thus, spent the rest of his life advocating for passive applications of atomic energy.

    Condition: Pencil notation to verso.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
