All of us in Carnegie Institution of Washington rejoice in yesterday's announcement that you have been chosen to receive
the Nobel Prize. Never has a Prize been more richly deserved.
And, never has anyone better exemplified the reasons for the Institution's existence--to seek out and support the uncommonly
creative individual who is engaged, in Mr. Carnegie's own words, in "basic research of a pioneering nature".
