Annotation by Joshua Lederberg:
Node: Simmonds, Sofia [Fruton]  -- Joe Fruton's wife.  She was a fellow
with Ed Tatum at Yale Osborn Labs from 1946; worked on various biosynthetic
pathways in E. coli.  Much of our correspondence pertains to exchange
of cultures and methods.
  Cf Joseph Fruton's numerous historical and biographical works;
J.F. was a peptide biochemist at Yale medical school; he was on my
Ph. D. examining committee.  Cf some correspondence but only in rather
later years.
