- Wigner asking a question at a seminar, presumably in the early 1950s. Courtesy of Dieter Brill.
- Sharp. Wigner is an excessively polite person, but he could be as sharp as this photo when physics comes. This photo is hanging in the physics building of the Univ. of Pecs (Hungary).
- Wigner with Students at Princeton.
These photos were taken in 1957. Steve Weinberg is in
one of the photos. Courtesy of Dieter Brill.
