Dear Mr. Kato:
In a telephone conversation with Dr. Blumenschein yesterday afternoon, I received your request for detailed information on the origin of the seed samples of races of maize received by me from Mexico and grown in North Carolina. The samples of seed of Chalqueno, Zapalote Chico, Arrocillo Amarillo, and Chapalote came from the original collection. The other samples were derived from propagation, as indicated.
I was very pleased to learn that you expect to make several trips this spring to visit other laboratories. It will be interesting for you and certainly leave impressions. When I see you in the near future, we can discuss aspects of this.
Sincerely yours,
Barbara McClintock
Information received with seed samples sent from Chapingo, Mexico, April, 1962.
