Did you know…

Did you know Albert Einstein visited Catalina Island?  I found this tucked into the Social and Personal announcement section of the Catalina Islander, dated February 25, 1931:

“Dr. Albert Einstein and Dr. Robert A. Millikan of Pasadena were Avalon visitors Sunda, crossing the channel in the palatial yacht “Valeria,” owned by Captain Allen G. Hancock.  The two great scientists walked along Crescent avenue and returned to the yacht without announcing their arrival.”

I love finding little bits like that!
