Beskrivning, engelska

During his lifetime, Bekesy collected a large number of

works of art and rare books. Many were lost in World War I,

others in World War II, and some were destroyed or damaged

as a result of a fire in Memorial Hall at Harvard. In spite of all

this, the collection gradually grew larger and more varied. But

the collection was almost as private as was Bekesy's personal

life—few persons were ever privileged to see more than a mere

fragment of it. Now, however, it is in the public domain. In his

last will and testament, Bekesy chose to honor the Nobel

Foundation, which had earlier bestowed such great honor upon

him, with a gift of that which was closest and dearest to him—

the art objects that he had collected over the years and that had

been both a source of inspiration in his work and a source of

solace for a lonely man in times of need of comfort. The Georg

von Bekesy Collection of Art was placed on public exhibition

for the first time, by the Nobel Foundation, on December 9,

1974. His collection of books is now in the Library of the

University of Hawaii. (Ratliff, Floyd, 1976, Georg von Békésy 1899—1972, A Biographical Memoir)
