Penrose in the National News

Penrose got covered in the Washington Times, and a number of other local sources, too.
Washington Times, July 8 — It’s one thing for college students to glean information online or from a textbook. It’s quite another to read or even hold actual material that played a part in history. Students at the University of Denver soon will be able to check out actual documents linked to the assassination plot against Adolf Hitler as well as papers associated with the Nuremberg trials, thanks to a just-donated trove of materials from California resident Andrea Sears-Van Nest.
Here are some other sources that cover the same topic.
