Abstract :

What were Albert Einstein's first wife’s contributions to his extraordinary productivity

in the first years of his career? A first biography of Mileva Maric was published in Serbian

in 1969 but remained largely unknown despite being translated first in German, then in

French in the 1990’s. The publication of Mileva and Albert’s love letters in 1987 brought

more information and more recently, two publications shed more light on Mileva Maric’s

life and work. I will review this evidence in its social and historical context to give a better

idea on her contributions.
