TEACHERS COLLEGE COLUMBIA UNlVERSlTY NEW YORK,N.Y. 10027 July 3, 1979 Dr. Joshua Lederberg, President The Rockefeller University New York, New York 10021 Dear Josh: Thanks for the material on Stuyvesant. I've t&&&t0 one of my doctoral students, a recent alumna of Radcliffe, about the possibility of working on Stuyvesant and Townsend Harris, and she displayed cautious interest. I'll continue to press on the issue and see if I can get an able person to give the topic some attention. I think it would be fascinating. I'll be in and out of Palo Alto this summer, though alas I shall be more on the East Coast than the West since I'm trying to finish a book. But it would be a delight to get together.
