Caption: Hilbert and Franck, German scientists, in the street with their bicycles. At left (wearing a hat) is German mathematician David Hilbert (1862-1943). At right is German physicist James Franck (1882-1964). Hilbert, professor of mathematics at Gottingen from 1895, is regarded by many as one of the greatest mathematicians of all time for his work on topology. Franck shared the 1925 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on atomic physics and the Bohr model of the atom. This photograph is from a collection by German physicist Hertha Sponer (Franck's future wife) in the years before 1934, while they lived and worked in Gottingen, Germany.Restrictions:
