Dutch physicist (1853–1928) who shared the 1902 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery and theoretical explanation of the Zeeman effect. Uncommon matte-finish 7 x 9.25 photo of Lorentz, affixed to its original 10.75 x 13.5 mount, signed and inscribed on the mount in fountain pen, “H. A. Lorentz to A. L. Klein.” Also signed on the mount in pencil by “Mabel Watson,” presumably the photographer. In fine condition. Lorentz was invited to Caltech in 1921 and gave lectures during the winter term of January–March 1922. The recipient, Arthur L. Klein, earned a PhD in physics from Caltech in 1925 and eventually taught there, retiring as a full professor in 1968.
