Einstein–Oppenheimer

Einstein and J. Robert Oppenheimer. Oppenheimer, Professor of Physics at UCal Berkeley, was appointed the Director of the Manhattan Project. He proved to be as capable an administrator as he had been an academic. After the War, however, when his clearance was rescinded, he was elected as the Director of the Institute for Advanced Study In Princeton, and, accordingly, Einstein’s boss.
