Leslie Groves finds Thérèse de Dillmont's Encyclopedia of Needlework on a table in 1943.

The Encyclopedia of Needlework was a book by the Austrian needleworker and writer, Thérèse de Dillmont. It was translated into many different languages.


In 1943, Leslie Groves found the Encyclopedia of Needlework on a table at the home that Dr. Emmett Brown was pretending was his own. When Groves asked Brown if he was a fan of needlework, Emmett responded by stating that he believed that anything could inspire a breakthrough, and that he didn't like to discount anything. Vannevar Bush appreciated that answer, which helped lead to Doc Brown getting a job working on the Manhattan Project, despite the fact that the men were aware that the interview did not actually take place at Emmett's residence.
