Gentlemen:
This letter is in support of the application of Mr. S. Gaylen Bradley for a post-doctoral fellowship administered by your office.
Mr. Bradley has discussed his research proposals with me and I am very happy to endorse them. If he wins the award for which he is applying he will be acceptable to this department and to me as a postdoctoral fellow and appropriate guidance and research facilities will be made available to him.
As I have met Mr. Bradley on only a single occasion, I can not make a very penetrating appraisal of his abilities. Judging from this conversation and from the commendatory remarks that have been made about him by Dr. Sussman, I am looking forward to his joining our laboratory research group. The problem that he proposes to undertake, namely the genetics of the actinomycetes, is a pressing and important one and should also give Mr. Bradley an excellent opportunity to increase the scope of his genetic training.
Yours sincerely,
Joshua Lederberg
