May I congratulate you on the conferment upon you of a Ph.D. honoris causa by the Weizmann Institute of Science and let you
know that we are looking forward to having you with us in Rehovot in May. As you know, the conferment ceremony will take place
on Monday, May 15 at 4.00 p.m. at the Wix Auditorium on our campus. Tentative reservations have been made for you on campus
from May 13 to 17 and they may, of course, be changed according to your wishes.
Your travel expenses will, of course, be borne by the Institute. Ms. Martha Loewenstein of the American Committee for the
Weizmann Institute will contact you in regard to flight arrangements. The address of the American Committee is: 515 Park Avenue,
New York, N.Y. 10022, telephone 212 Plaza 2-1300.
In order to have a well-fitting gown, hood and cap made, I am afraid I must ask you to divulge your measurements, namely,
height, width and particularly, size of hat. We would appreciate receiving these details at your earliest convenience.
Should you wish to invite a few special Israeli friends or relatives to the ceremony, please let us have their names and addresses.
Please let us have flight details so that we can arrange to meet you on arrival.
Director of Special Affairs and Secretary of the Association
