Einstein DIES (His Office Remains Untouched, Photo Apr 19, 1955)

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.
