Einstein began to publish in the Physical Review after he began working with his first American research assistant, Nathan Rosen. They submitted three landmark papers together to the journal. These papers and their reception are discussed, along with the remarkable story of Einstein's umbrage at the referee report he received in response to his third submission. Although the referee was vindicated and Einstein eventually had to reverse his position, he never submitted a research paper to the Physical Review again. The identity of the referee, as learned from the Review's own records, will be revealed and Einstein's subsequent relationship with the journal will be discussed.
