Letter from Joshua Lederberg to Gabriele Ehrlich (October 13, 1972)
Your letter to Dr. Gabriele Ehrlich of October 13, 1972 was forwarded to me. I am sorry to inform you that Dr. Ehrlich died
two years ago in Vienna. I have shown your letter to Dr. Zacharias Dische, who worked in this department for all the years
Dr. Ehrlich did, but even that he knew Dr. Ephrussi and Dr. Ehrlich well he did not remember anything which could contribute
to your inquiry.
