My file on the 1946 Cold Spring Harbor Symposium contains only a carbon copy of the manuscript and my copy of the page proof.
I believe that this is explained in part by the fact that the initial correspondence was with Avery who declined to participate
but, as he did on a couple of other occasions, proposed me as a substitute. Thus, most of the correspondence concerning arrangements
and any announcement of the meeting would have resided in the Avery files which he so carefully and inexplicably destroyed
at the time of his departure for Nashville in 1948.
