Letter from A. D. Hershey to Michael Heidelberger
Description:
This letter refers to Hershey's efforts to use bacteriophages, viruses that infect bacteria, to study the kinetics--the rate and mechanisms--of immune reactions. The bacteriologist, geneticist, and 1969 Nobel Laureate asked Heidelberger for a critical review of a draft paper.

Dear Dr. Heidelberger
I want to thank you personally for the very proactive preface of complement fixation you furnished us yesterday.
I am sending along the papers on reaction-rate according to our aggreement[sic], in which your part is to pick the holes in the argument.
You also promised to send me Kendall's equilibrium treatment of the quantitative theory.
Sincerely.
AD Hershey
