Dick:

There are lots of photographs of Albert Einstein, most
taken in the 1950's, when he was a celebrity. But
Einstein did the work that made him famous a half
century earlier. Since holography did not exist in
Einstein's time, any hologram will have to be
synthesized somehow from other materials, as you
suggested. Could you consider using the young Einstein
instead of the old Einstein as the model?
