A Non-Technical History of the Generalized Theory of Gravitation Dedicated to the Albert Einstein Centennial

When I was a graduate student in Cambridge (1949–1952) there were only five or six elementary particles and they were sufficient to construct all known forms of matter, from nuclei, atoms, molecules, and macromolecules to the solar system, stars, galaxies, universe and ultimately life itself. The famous Cavendish Laboratory was then a great center of scientific research in almost all areas including theoretical and experimental physics, chemistry, biochemistry, biology and a host of allied fields. In fact it was only in 1962 that I learned that Crick and Watson were at that very time divining the double-helix structure of the DNA molecule in a room adjacent to the Arts building where most of the activities in theoretical physics were taking place.
