Dear Dr. Stone:
Mr. Allen G. Marr's application for a pre-doctorate research fellowship from the Public Health Service has my unqualified endorsement. He appears to have unusual ability in microbiological research, comprising technical competence, both mechanical and intellectual, imagination, and persistence. He is an affable, well-adjusted and well-motivated personality.
I have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Marr as one of the most promising students whom I have met, and as an exceptionally suitable candidate for the fellowship in question. This conclusion is based upon the consideration not only of his academic attainments, but also the elements of character and loyalty referred to in your form letter.
Yours sincerely,
Joshua Lederberg
Visiting, Summer Session II
