Dear Dr. Nirenberg,
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for taking time out of your schedule to speak to a group of my students. The boys were most impressed with your views on working in the field of science. Your enthusiasm for your work was infectious. I particularly felt that one comment, about making your life's work your hobby, left an indelible message. I wish we could bottle your philosophy and send it out to science classes across the country. Again my thanks, and all the best these holidays and in 1990.
Sincerely yours,
Ronald LaCoss
