Recently she is recognized as the mother of the Theory of Relativity. This because of newer research based on letters written by her husband Albert Einstein.
Prior to publishing his Theory of Relativity, Einstein wrote to her: “How happy and proud I’ll be when we both together will have finished successfully our work on the theory of relativity.”
In another letter he wrote to his father-in-law in 1905: “Everything I made and achieved I have to thank Mileva. She is my ingenious inspiration, my guardian angel against sins in life and even more in science. Without her I wouldn’t have started and finished my work.”
Partly because of the letters written by Einstein, she received the title “mother of the theory of relativity” even though her contribution is still disputed. There is no disputing her brain power. Marić was only the fifth woman admitted to the technical university ETH in Zurich in 1896. It has been shown that her examination results were even better than that of Einstein himself.
Mileva Marić deserves this sign of esteem the city of Zurich has shown.
The following book offers new insights into Einstein’s private life and character, and brings to light Mileva’s role in Einstein’s personal and scientific development.
