Abstract

0 THE ROCKEFELLER UNIVERSITY 1230 YORK AVENUE NEW YORK, NY 10021 JOSHUA LEDERBERG August 17, 1979 PRESIDENT Dr. Lewis Thomas President Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center 1275 York Avenue New York, New York 10021 Dear Lewis: I was happy to hear from Igor Tamm that you will be able to participate in the colloquium on October 5 commemorating the 100th birthday of Peyton Rous. This is to extend my own per- sonal invitation not only to the colloquium but to an informal luncheon that day. I am enclosing a brief outline of the program for your guidance. There will be no printed program, but it would be helpful to have in advance a sentence or two from you summa- rizing your presentation. I hope the October gathering will recapture the same tone of informality, nostalgic warmth, and spirited scientific exchange that marked the colloquium earlier this year on the 35th anniversary of the publication of the DNA paper by Avery, MacLeod, and McCarty. Thank you for joining us. Cordially, Joshua Lederberg cc: Hidesaburo Hanafusa Purnell Choppin Igor Tamm Rodney W. Nichols
