Dear Doctor Nirenberg:
This note is written in hopes that you would be willing to accept an invitation to be the main speaker at the genetics symposium to be held at the forthcoming meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology on Saturday, December 6th in Miami, Florida.
The American Academy of Dermatology is the largest national organization in this specialty. I have been asked to organize the yearly symposium on genetics in dermatology, and I am making strong efforts not only to keep the field alive, but also to improve its research and teaching performance. You would do genetics, dermatology, and dermatologic genetics a great service if you were in a position to accept our invitation. The Academy would be happy to defray all your travel expenses and to offer an honorarium of $200.00. The topic of your talk would be left up to you, but your work and views on the genetic code would be just fine.
Hoping that you might accept this invitation, I remain
Sincerely yours,
George F. Wilgram, M.D., Ph.D.
P.S. The first letter sent to you on March 24 apparently went astray in the mail.
