Letter from Claude D. Stout to Marshall W. Nirenberg
Description:
Stout, an attorney from Wisconsin, conveys his interest in Nirenberg's work on the genetic code. He writes that "there must be a scientific reason why the descendents of the ancient Roman-Norman stock who fled to England brought such contribution to culture." He explains that he remains confident that "further research by the geneticists will reveal the impact of dominant genes of heredity."

Dear Dr. Nirenberg:
I am intrigued at your achievement in "Cracking the genetic code."
My investigation in the area of genealogy has brought a conviction that there must be a scientific reason why the descendants of the ancient Roman-Norman stock who fled England brought such contribution to culture.
I enclose a copy of the concluding chapter of my manuscript along with other copies having a pertinent connection.
Incidentally, by grandson graduated with honors from the University of California and is pursuing advanced studies at the University of Wisconsin in biochemistry.
I am confident that further research by the geneticists will reveal the impact of dominant genes of heredity.
Cordially,
Claude D. Stout
