Since I am entering[?] a couple of biochemists (any the McElroy) for memberships in the Nat Academy of Sciences I would suggest
that you and Al Hershey (if somebody else haven't done it already) proposed Seymor [sic] Benzer, Seymor [sic] S. Cohen
and Rollin D. Hotchkiss. Max Delbruck would probably take care of Benzer anyhow. Seymor [sic] Cohen is close to biochemistry
and I might drop a line to Arthur Kornberg. Anyhow the Academy needs fresh blood.
Kindest greetings and Wishes for Xmas and New Year to you and Esther from us
P.S. After X-mas I will write you a letter about an idea about a symposium at the National Academy on something like "The
Molecular Basis for Interaction of Alleles"
We have also fine news to tell in our K12 research. H.
