Szilard ought at least to be member of American Philosophical Society. Vincent du Vignent suggested to me that you contact
Wendell Stanley concerning membership for Szilard in American Philosophical Society. I spent an hour with Szilard. Our lively
conversation moved from transferase in K-12 to dances of Yudian bees to H bomb. His ideas in the later direction I find truthful
and unsentimental. Yesterday I had a delightful reunion with J.R. Oppenheimer. He has become actively interested in Molecular
Biology as a topic at [ . . . ] for Advanced Studies - - also to touch off, if possible the development, in the biology dept.
at Princeton University. The beginning is very important and I did not hesitate to emphasize you as the right man to initiate
it. Hope you don't mind.
