Does Albert Einstein's brain reside in Lawrence?

No. Dr. Thomas Harvey, a former Lawrence resident, preserved Einstein's brain after Einstein died in 1955 at a Princeton, N.J., hospital, where Harvey worked at the time.

The brain later was cut up into about 200 pieces, many of which have been used for research at various universities.

Harvey a few years ago moved from Lawrence to the Princeton area. Some parts of the brain and original photographs of Einstein's autopsy still in Harvey's possession were taken with him.
