Dr. Ann Cook Ganesan
12/1/91
Dear Ann --
I was so shocked to hear that Gan had died -- I gather suddenly.
What hard luck! Not for the first time. How he loved the laboratory [mark to note, and I know how often he did not get full credit for his accomplishment.] and stuck to that through so many trials. And I gather he was just back towards a new peak of optimism and productivity.
Oh Ann, I do grieve with you.
Yours,
Joshua

KW: Condolences to Ann Cook Ganesan re death of her husband
"Gan"; "What hard luck!  Not for the first time. How he loved
the laboratory and stuck to that through so many trials.... and
how often he did not get full credit for his accomplishment."
[I had mainly in mind his evidence on membrane association of B.
subtilis polymerase.
