Einstein's last paper

Rowdy Boeyink could have written the worst term paper in the world and yet received high passing honors. Well, he didn't and he garnered a position in the discovery of a significant scientific historical document--probably Einstein's last technical paper written in conjunction with Satyendra Nath Bose and called "Quantum theory of the monatomic ideal gas" [12/24]. Does it sound familiar: The " Bose-Einstein Condensate"? Makes one wonder what other treasures are buried in libraries or under a mattress.
