Thank you for the reprint on AL Tatum
I was interested in the small light it throws on Ed's family-professional background.
ALT's financial affairs are of interest in their own light as a contrast or precedent to contemporary univ.-ind. relationships.
A historiographic note: ALT's probated will could give you some idea of (or bounds to) any personal financial gain he may have "p[ . . . ]ted" US. used for research.
Are there no surviving [mark to note, Howard Tatum's address
is 3159 Mome [?] Drive, NW
Atlanta, Ga. 30305] octogenerian [sic] pharmacologists to tell you about finances of research in the dept. 40 years ago?
Yours sincerely,
Joshua Lederberg
He must have had some discussion w/ his father.
