Dear Victor:
Have you seen this rather hostile article by Judith Randal on the Medical Genetics Course? She takes off from Dick Lewontin's criticism of his fellow geneticists, intended I think as an insider's criticism, and uses it as a springboard for her own dissatisfaction with the field of genetics. I suppose that when reporters are present in such a meeting one cannot be sure that some of them will not respond in this way. Probably there is nothing that can really be done about this, though one might try to show Miss Randal that some of her inferences from the Lewontin lecture are incorrect.
Thanks for the copy of the letter sent from Newfoundland.
With best regards,
Sincerely,
John L. Fuller
Senior Staff Scientist
