Dear Mike --
If you meant it, I would appreciate your investigating what really happened -- the enclosures can be a point of departure.
I have guessed that conflicts over relocating Genetics to Davis were a central issue.
As I am working on an autobiography, I would like to make fair and informed comment -- but about institutional process, not personality.
I was not too distressed by Jenkins letter of 3/13/58. It released me from my commitment to UC and allowed me to proceed with Stanford.
When will you be in N.Y.C.?
Yours,
Joshua.

PS. UC in the 1950's
Do you know of any memoirs or histories concerning that [mark to note, tranquil!] period.
