A Caltech Archives special exhibition on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Richard Feynman’s birth

May 11, 2018 through June 14, 2019

In work and play, Richard Feynman was a distinctively visual thinker. The Caltech Archives is telling the story of Feynman’s life and physics by exhibiting the notes and artwork through which he shared his vision. Highlights include the early Feynman diagrams with which Feynman developed his Nobel Prize-winning contributions to quantum electrodynamics, illustrated lecture notes for the famous Feynman lectures on physics, sketches of colleagues and campus sites, and photographs of Feynman as a teacher, drummer, and amateur actor.
