Appendix I: A Letter from Avery to His Brother Roy, Dated May 26, 1943
Description:
In this partial transcript of a rather lengthy letter to his brother, Oswald Avery explains that his retirement plans have been placed on hold due to the war and the recent developments of his research on pneumococcal transformation. This excerpt includes the second part of the original letter in which Avery provided a rather thorough introduction to the history of research on the transforming principle and describes the results of experiments conducted by Avery, MacLeod, and McCarty and the role of DNA as carrier of genetic information.
