Garrod and gene-enzyme relationships.
Dear Harry
I am completing a memoir on Ed Tatum, and would very much appreciate your critical examination of my discussion of Garrod's view of gene function.
Surely you have read his writing more carefully than I.
You may be interested that Beadle and Tatum did know of Garrod by 1/1/1941 -- before they started on Neurospora. (I had read him in "Bodansky" in 1938; surely Haldane's 1937 essay was very widely read. The book was a class assignment at Columbia in 1942-43.)
Yours,
Joshua.
