Dave Perkins just told me about your sharing the Wolf Prize with Stan Cohen.
That is great, but as everyone knowledgeable of the situation agrees it should have been recognized long ago in your case.
I admit in the early stages of your most remarkable work I was skepitcal [sic], but that was years ago.
I enclose a copy of my little article on the origin of corn that you no doubt have seen.
