Colin MacLeod was due to give the Fourth Griffith Memorial Lecture but passed away shortly before the April 1972 General Meeting
of the Society for General Microbiology. Instead of the detailed focus on the labors of Avery, MacLeod, and McCarty and others
at the Rockefeller Institute, that was to be the focus of MacLeod's lecture, his stand-in, Downie, chose to discuss the
similarities between Griffith's and Avery's approaches to bacterial transformation.
