Dear Joshua,
I hope that you remember me!
I have a senior girl who wants to go into graduate work in Bacteriology. She is one of my current students and altho I do not know her well ( I have been here at Colby only 2 mo) she seems to be a steady sort of girl. Her record shows 1 A 27 B's 6 C's (semester grades). She has had Organic Chem. and Physics I and a year of College Math.
Two questions:--
1. Is it worth her while applying at Wisconsin?
2. Would you jot down her most likely prospects as regards other schools?
She needs some assisting or other financial aid.

I have followed your career from a distance. Journal articles--group photos etc. but have missed you and wife at Wood's Hole.
We made the big change from Union to Colby in September this year after 16 years at Union!!
Regards from the
Pine Tree State
Allan Scott
