Eugene Wigner (1902 - 1995)

Eugene Wigner (1902 - 1995)

Eugene Paul "E. P." Wigner (Hungarian Wigner Jeno Pál; November 17, 1902 – January 1, 1995) was a Hungarian American theoretical physicist and mathematician, and Nobel Prize winner.

This offering is both the tape recordings and a transcript of an interview that was carried out by an author. The author's intent was to interview Wigner concerning both his rememberances of Albert Einstein and to comment on the very famous letter that was actually transcribed by Wigner which Einstein sent to FDR concerning America starting research and development of the atomic bomb. This may have been because Einstein, as pointed out in the interview, was not comfortable with the English language, although he spoke it well enough.

The transcript of the interview is filled with fascinating content including personal comments about Einstein, how Einstein opposed Hitler and one of the strategies for keeping the Nazis from getting uranium from the Beligan Congo (where have we heard about uranium in the Beligan Congo before???) Apparently, Wigner and others including Einstein were against using the atomic bomb on civilians, which prompted a second letter to FDR which arrived two days after FDR's death. Wigner reveals that a conversation with a Japanese friend revealed that the friend thought the dropping of the bomb was indicated because it stopped the war and saved millions of lives.

Wigner was an important and influencial physicist and mathematition, his seminal work on the structure of the nucleus and reactions that occur within an accellerator won him the Nobel Prize.

The content of this interview contains some fascinating and important facts that will be of interest to anyone in the scientific field.

This lot contains the tape recordings of the interview so that Wigner's voice is easily heard. It also contains, as mention previously, the transcript of the interview which Wigner typed himself and signed. There is also an annotated copy of the interview in Wigners hand which was probably done before he retyped the transcript of the interview flawlessly which he signed. Wigner probably did this to make sure that the interview was an accurate representation of his thoughts.
