Annotation by Joshua Lederberg:
KW: my meeting with  AEC 3/18/70 [documented in JS Walker book,
Containing the Atom] mostly re using natural background as basis of
regulatory standards;
refers to minutes,   Cleaver on DNA-repair polymorphism; radiation
and! chemical mutagenesis;

[my proposals would have addressed total background of DNA damage;
radiation may be a small part of that;]
