Dear Dr. Nirenberg:
I have just been talking with Miss Kathryn Cusick at the Neuro-Science Center in Brookline, Massachusetts and she tells me that you will be on campus during the Neuro-Science Conference, July 20 to August 8, 1969. On behalf of Dean J.R. Little, Associate Dean of the Faculties, Secretary of the University and of the Board of Regents, and the Special Events Committee of which I am the Administrative Assistant, we would like to extend an invitation to you to speak on our Summer Lecture Series.
Each summer we invite persons of eminence in various academic and professional fields to deliver scholarly but non-technical lectures to a general audience of University faculty, students, and citizens of the Boulder-Denver area. The lecture topic should be of your own choosing relating to some phase of your work in genetics, biochemistry, etc. In addition to giving such a lecture, and attending the Conference, if you should find time to also speak informally to one or more of our graduate seminars, our students and faculty would welcome such an opportunity.
We would be pleased to have you accept an honorarium of $750 for this lecture, and we would pay your round trip air transportation from Bethesda to Denver. We would be happy to house you as a guest of the University for one or two nights, either on campus in one of our new residence halls, or at the Harvest House.
We have an open date of July 23 in the 1969 Summer Lecture Series if this would fit into your plans. Also, we appreciate having our lecturers furnish us with a manuscript for publication in our non-profit University journal, The Colorado Quarterly, which is sent to the libraries of all the high schools in Colorado, as well as to the junior colleges, community colleges, senior colleges, and other universities in the state. This further provides a lasting value for the individual lectures and we do keep a file in the Archives of this University.
I am enclosing a copy of last summer's Lecture Series together with a statement of University policy concerning public lectures, and a tape release form which we hope you will sign and permit the University to use for non-commercial and classroom purposes.
I hope you will not object to my calling you on Monday, May 19 (301-496-5208) to see what your reaction is to our invitation. If you prefer, please call me collect (303-443-2211 X7425). Thank you for your consideration of our proposal.
Sincerely yours,
(Mrs.) Mildred W. Coffin, Adm. Ass't., Special Events Committee
