Alfred Mirsky
I was sorry to learn just now, died about 2 months ago.
As you know he was a central figure in the apotheosis of DNA. It would be a shame if his papers disappeared like so many of his collegues' [sic].
His widow who works at the R.U. Library might be more responsive to suggestions from historians than from more personal connections . . . .
Allfrey worked very closely at RU with Mirsky, may be another useful contact.
Josh.
