Memo
London 7/14/59
The chair is Medicine is still vacant. Acc/ to H Kaplan, he vacillated violently on an offer by Stanford. After his second visit (Feb 12; April 20) he declined, probably under pressure from his friends in N.Y. The H.K. says he changed heart, but the committee was no longer willing to consider qualified as a decisive administrator. (He may have vacillated more than once!)
One by-product is the availability of space in Edwards basement for Genetics (Nossal and Herzenberg). As a basis of attracting London, arrangements were made to complete that construction. Then London balked at a windowless area and exchanged this for our assignment in the old Pharm.-Anatomy building.
I am personally very disappointed not to have London here: he seemed ideally apt in an academic medicine program and we should have had many points of common interest.
Berliner from the NIH is now under consideration. I have to meet him Friday. If that doesn't work out I should look into running the issue. However even our close friends have cooled somewhat and it may be futile!
