Einstein's office

On the day Albert Einstein died in 1955, LIFE Magazine photographer Ralph Morse visited the famed genius's office. This is what Morse found, Einstein's office, as he left it:
As any visitor to HC can attest, I, like Einstein, am a messy-desk person. Clean-desk people mistakenly interpret this as unmitigated chaos, open to either more chaos or a good tidying up. Either of those usually results in a temporary but significant drop in productivity. There is order here, but I'm betting only Einstein himself fully understood it.

We're taking a Thanksgiving break, and are closed Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week. We'll see you on Saturday, usual hours. Happy Thanksgiving!

"There is order here" -- huh!
