My friend, Steven Levy, found Einstein’s brain. I love this story. It was 1978, he was 27 years old. It just shows what you can do with a little (or a lot) of persistent digging around. You can solve a cold case murder (Jerry Mitchell, investigative journalist for the Jackson, Mississippi newspaper, The Clarion-Ledger) or, in Steven’s case, without the benefit of Google, or the internet at all, you can track down the brain of one of the smartest people who ever lived.
I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.View all posts by Stacy Horn →
