Circa July 1959
Dean Alway was quite pleased at your offer of a trial subscription to CC. He suggests starting this about September 1; I am sure you will glean a number of additional subscribers. We will send out a note with the distribution; if you want to add any explanatory or exhortatory information send it along with the shipments.
Please send 30 sets addressed to
Dean Robert Always
Stanford University Medical School
Palo Alto -- Stanford Medical Center
Palo Alto, California.
We will distribute from there.
Will bulk shipments (on paid subscription) come pre-addressed -- or is this service part of the extra mailing charge for individual addressing? How much would that additional charge be?
NSF may have deflected our ploy on C.I. but I am still thinking what might be done. Let me know if there are any further developments -- there should be!
Frankly I don't think that "genetics" is the first best circumscribed field for a [ . . . ] C.I. I think "physiology" would be much better. But we need[?] it in all of science and any move to get started is a good one. If you C.I. just a group of genetics journals as a closed group I'm afraid you wouldn't generate much improvement over what most[?] people in the field remember from their own experience[?].
