Memo/Reply From
Joshua Lederberg
TO: Dr. Tooze
January 28, 1980
P.S. re Griffith
A propos your piece in TIBS 11/78: let me take the occasion to take issue with your attribution to Griffith that "the pabulum was the carbohydrate antigen itself."
I have joined the issue before: but I think you will find Griffith's own language compelling. Of course, we now have to retranslate protein structure: but what is most clear is that Griffith did not identify this with the carbohydrate.
If you agree, could I move you to volunteer a footnote of correction -- better than my seeming to make an unwarranted fuss.
Sincerely,
Joshua Lederberg
