San Diego, CA with this additional clarification: Professor Einstein and his companions (incl. Walter Mayer - a mathematician from Graz, Austria) had taken
the "Belgenland" in the Belgian port of Antwerp on December 2, 1930, to travel
through the Panama Canal to the port of San Diego, California and from there
by road to the neighboring city of Pasadena, where they arrived around New Year
1931, invited by the director of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech)
Robert Millikan, himself a Nobel Prize winner in Physics in 1923, in consideration
of his important experimental determinations, one of which allowed to fully confirm
the formula of the photoelectric effect obtained by Einstein in 1905 with which
the latter won in 1921 The Nobel Prize in Physics)

Henry Behar with Duke of Bejar's Coat of Arms
-- Henry Behar from New York, NY --
(during his trip to Béjar, Spain, Sept 2003)

One theory is that the name Béjar originates from the Spanish word
(bee) upon which the city's economy was long time based ...
So, pay attention to Duke of Bejar's Coat of Arms in this photo.

Up to this point the viewer can appreciate the photos collected before the 2004 First World Summit
Behars, Bejars, Vejars, Bejaranos, etc. in Béjar, Spain took place. The increased number of
photos later lead to difficulties in loading the photo album page when accessed.
For this
reason only on February 27, 2008 the album has been divided in two separate parts:
Part 1 (pre-Summit 2004 collection) and Part 2 (post-Summit 2004 collection)

Web Design: Mario Behar  ...  NY, 2004-2018
