Einstein RECEIVES HONORARY DOCTORATE (OXFORD, ENGLAND, 1931)

In 1955, Einstein had been sick and pretty much knew he was nearing the end.  But he had no plans to go to a hospital.  It wasn't until a friend told him how upset his personal secretary (Ms. Helen Dukas) was, that he finally agreed to go.  He wanted her to feel better.
