The "original" image is fake either way. Albert Einstein wrote a lot larger than that...

That's a famous photo (to old people like me). The orig has a 4 letter equation on the board, R-something = O-something. It's likely from the early years after his permanent move to the US in 1933.

If Cameron gets the credit, his 1963 book is 8 years after Einy's death, so who was there to agrue?

WhyTH am I being serious?

But it's a better story with Einstein. Whatever. Truth no matter who coined it.
