Annotation by Joshua Lederberg:
Node:  Fox, SW; P-11; formation of antibodies in yeast!;
claimed by Fox and Ward 1946, and I cited uncritically in my review
P-11; setting up lab at Wisconsin; early perhaps first reference
to my interest in antibody formation;
Fox SW and Ward, MJ 1946  JACS 68:2118;

3/99 SCI search located a refutation,
Fox, SW and Plaisted, E.  1953  Pr Soc Exp Biol Med (PSEBM) 84:392-394
 The precipitability of 2 modfied proteins.  It's all an artefact
 and modification can occur in absence of yeast.
It was also dis-confirmed by Westphal, U. 1949  Z. Natforsch. B N 4:53-54
same Fox crops up in hundreds of papers like:
FOX SW, BAHN PR, DOSE K, et al.
       EXPERIMENTAL RETRACEMENT OF THE ORIGINS OF A PROTOCELL
         - IT WAS ALSO A PROTONEURON
       J BIOL PHYS 20: (1-4) 17-36 1994
