LA Times takes the time to look back on Albert Einstein and Dr. Richard C. Tolman‘s work in California.

“Jan. 8, 1932: Dr. Richard C. Tolman, left, and professor Albert Einstein stand in front of a blackboard at Caltech. Tolman led a seminar at Caltech for more than 50 scientists.
Under the headline “Expanding Universe Theory Subject of Lecture,” a Los Angeles Times article reported the next morning:
PASADENA, Jan. 8. (Exclusive) — Exposed to the scorching rays of higher mathematics, the new-born expanding and contracting “lung” universe theory proved himself a Spartan brain child today.
The seminar leader exhibited several mathematically correct models of self-perpetuating universes in the form of blackboard equations.
Einstein was a visiting professor at Caltech from 1931 to 1933. Since 2000, the Einstein Papers Project has been at Caltech. Additional photos are in this previous From the Archive post: Einsteins greets the media in 1931.
