Dear Josh:
On a recent trip to Tennessee I decided to look at the Avery materials in the State Library and Archives in Nashville. Not much for my purposes. I did get a copy of the original of the entire 1943 letter to his brother.
One other item attracted my attention, a copy of which is enclosed. It is new to me, the text of a 1949 address on getting an award from the Passano Foundation. Is it new to you? What's your reaction to this item?
Yours truly,
Nathan Reingold
Senior Historian
Department of the History of Science and Technology
I knew he had the award, but I've never seen this text. Thank you. It has no surprises--but note he doesn't say "gave" even in 1949--long after others (including myself) did, and he himself in effect in his letter to his brother.
Thanks, Joshua.
