Roland Eötvös in Heidelberg
On February 10, 2020, the European Physical Society announced that Dutch historian of science Dr. Henk Kubbinga has located a small set of documents related to Baron Roland Eötvös’s doctorate in physics at the archives of Ruprecht-Karls-University in Heidelberg.
The documents will be published by the Library and Information Centre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in its electronic repository.
The most interesting piece of the set is a handwritten autobiography of Roland Eötvös in Latin, which will also be made available in a Hungarian translation by Gábor Tóth, librarian at the Library’s Department of Manuscripts and Rare Books.
This is not the only result of last year’s Eötvös 100 project. Member of the Leibniz Society and honorary member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences Hainz Kautzleben recently assessed the scientific achievements of Eötvös and a memorial to Eötvös is soon to be erected in South Tyrol.
