Bussard was a French immunologist visiting U-Wisconsin, another laboratory;
we found utmost charming.  This chatty letter was an extension of our
numerous conversations.

Background: summer 1953 was a trip to San Francisco for award of the
Lilly Prize in Microbiology.  We had visited California in 1950 (I was
a visiting professor at UC/Berkeley; and this visit confirmed our determination
to move to the Pacific Coast should the opportunity arise.  That did
ultimately eventuate (2/59) after false starts at Stanford Biology
and at UC/Berkeley.
