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.
