Telegram from Alexander Rich to Rosalind Franklin
Description:
During her 1954 visit to the United States, Franklin made many new contacts among the virus researchers all over the country. Alexander Rich was working on studies of TMV protein that closely paralleled Franklin's and they were in frequent communication during 1955. Bothered by some measurements he had provided her for an article she was about to send to press, Franklin cabled Rich to double-check his results. This telegram confirmed that he had made an error. He followed up with a letter in which he analyzed her latest results in detail.
