Dear Joshua,
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.
Fondest regards to you and Esther
Sincly
Herman
