Brilliant American physicist (1904-1967) who directed the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and who spearheaded the Manhattan Project, leading to the development of the first atomic bomb. Extremely desirable vintage glossy 10 x 8 photo of Robert Oppenheimer seated at his desk with a pipe, signed in blue ballpoint. In fine condition, with scattered light creasing. Oppenheimer remains incredibly elusive in signed photos, with this representing the first we have offered in 10 years, and the largest example we have ever seen.
