Childhood Pictures Of Our Favorite Historical Scientists

Historical Scientists As Children

This sounds like an old person thing to say, but life is really short. We all want to leave our mark and contribute in a way that will be remembered long after we’re gone. Steve Jobs is an example of someone who lived his life this way, and he loved that old Wayne Gretzky quote, “I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.” It’s a great reminder to stay innovative, creative and original.

When I think about the genius minds of Steven Hawking, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison and Charles Darwin, I am blown away because they were able to overcome incredible obstacles and make discoveries that we all still benefit from today. The most mind-boggling part to me is that they were able to achieve their greatness without having access to modern technology. They did all their research, took all their notes and conducted all their experiments without the use of a personal computer or the Internet (except for Stephen Hawking who is still alive today of course).

I found these vintage photographs of some of our favorite scientists when they were children on kuriositas. As you know, back then, photographs were viewed as a way to document history, not as a way to necessarily create happy memories. It was just a different perspective, which is why we don’t see many people smiling in black and white photos from those days. However, as you can see, a lot of these children are smiling, which is neat. Thomas Edison looks like he was especially having a fun time the day that picture was taken. I linked each name below with their Wikipedia page so you can read about their claim to fame. I love this kind of stuff!
