In this show, Natalie promotes the museum’s newest exhibit Genius in a Jar: Albert Einstein’s Brain in Lawrence, which shares the odd and unethical story of Dr. Thomas Harvey who stole part of Einstein’s brain. Harvey lived in Lawrence from 1988-1993 and became known nationally for showcasing the brain to family, friends, and researchers. Find out what eventually happened to Einstein’s Brain in this episode of Time Capsule!
