Original caption: Nine American scientists and one Chinese scholar were awarded citations for eminence in widely varied fields of achievement in pure and applied science tonight climaxing in a day of nationwide commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the Polish astronomer, Nicholas Copernicus, who died May 24, 1543. The awards were made at a meeting in Carnegie Hall sponsored jointly by the Kosciusko Foundation and the Copernican Quadricentennial National Committee. Here, at the meeting, are (left to right): Dr. Henry Noble MacCracken, president of Vassar College and of the Kosciusko Foundation; Professor Albert Einstein; Dr. Harlow Shapley, director of the Harvard College Observatory; and Dr. James Y.C.
