The Search for the Molecular Helix
October 5, 1951
Dear Mr. Macleish:
I am writing to tell you that I think LIFE did an excellent job on the article describing the work on protein structure that
Professor Corey and I have been carrying out, which appeared in the issue of September 24. It seems to me that every statement
in the article is sound, in the meaning that it has for scientists, and that also it is satisfactory in the interpretation
that the layman would give it. The two meanings are not always exactly the same.
It was a pleasure for me to work with Mr. Ginna. He has a very good understanding of science, and I would expect him to do
a good job with anything that he tackled.
