Dr. Barbara McClintock
[stamped, SEP -- 9 1982]
Are all the archives gone?
Dear Barbara --
I am trying to document the history of bacterial genetics 1945-1950 in some detail. The CSH conference July 1946 was of course a major forum.
In particular, I am trying to pin down the exact date of my own presentation, (ad hoc) after Ed Tatum's.
So far, I have found noone [sic] who has a copy of the final program, or a diary or whatever, to answer that question. Telling a story, I like to be as concrete as possible!
By chance do you still have any notes or records of that conference?

With all my best w[letters cut off in original]
