 Rudi W. Mandl (1894–1948), Czech-German electrical engineer and amateur astronomer, was interested in gravitational lensing. In 1936 he met Albert Einstein and persuaded him to deal with this problem. Einstein then published Lens-Like Action of a Star By the Deviation of Light In the Gravitational Field.
