David R Topper

David R Topper

David R. Topper earned his PhD in the History of Science from Case Western Reserve University in 1970, and became a Professor of History at the University of Winnipeg, Canada, where he taught courses in the history of science and the history of art for 42 years, until he retired in 2012.  He is the proud recipient of two teaching awards: the Robson Memorial Award for Excellence in Teaching (1981), and the National 3M Teaching Fellowship (1987). Since 1982 he has been an international co-editor and honorary editor of the Art & Science journal Leonardo.

He has published four books: Quirky Sides of Scientists: True Tales of Ingenuity and Error from Physics and AstronomyHow Einstein Created Relativity from Physics and AstronomyIdolatry and Infinity: Of Art, Math, and God, and Einstein for Anyone. He is now delving into historical fiction with his fifth book, A Solitary Smile: A Novel on Einstein. With three of the books solely on Einstein, and Einstein making an appearance in the other two, one may expect that the world’s most famous scientist will find a way of sneaking into Topper’s next book. Just wait and see.
