The Molecular Basis of Disease
January 11, 1945
Dear Dr. Bush:
I am very pleased to accept the appointment mentioned in your letter of January 5 as a member of the special committee which
will devote its attention to the question of the future of medical research in this country.
If the committee holds many meetings, it may not be possible for me to attend all of them, because of the distance from California
to Washington. I shall, however, do my best to be helpful to the committee.
