Annotation by Joshua Lederberg:
KW: NAS; ABCC; radiation; human population genetics; Crow; Neel;
  Hiroshima; atomic bomb casualty commission; human biology;

My response to a query for critical assessment:
  difficulties of genetic analysis
  poor participatipon of Japanese scientists
  Need to go beyond radiation in population study
  Need for intra-kindred analytic designs

My comments were informed by my visit to ABCC/Hiroshima
  in April 1962
