KW: Rockefeller University Presidency;  This letter must be from the
Tatum archives at RU, and I don't believe I'd had any prior inkling of it.
Perhaps Norton Zinder had joked about it; but until now I had no idea I had been

Eugene Kennedy was also mentioned here, and a worthy prospect;
(I had visited Ed, RU, in June 1967;)
