This picture was taken on a train in Soviet Union
by an anonymous photographer, according to Tarski. It was
used in the Tarski room of the University of California at Berkeley.
The picture appeared in the frontispiece of Tarski's Collected Papers edited by
Steven R. Givant and Ralph N. McKenzie (Birkhäuser, Basel-Boston-Stuttgart, 1986),
as well as in the paper "A Portrait of Alfred Tarski", by Steven Givant (The
Mathematical Intelligencer, 13/3, 1991, pp. 16-32). The copies were
made from the original prints that Tarski had in his possession.
Since then the picture has received fairly wide distribution.
