Dear Senator Heinz:
I trust you are as pleased as I am to see that the way has been cleared for Dr. C. Everett Koop, formerly of Philadelphia and presently Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health, to be nominated for Surgeon General after which, of course, he must appear before Senator Hatch's Committee for confirmation.
Contrary to the image that has been created by the media, I know Dr. Koop to be a reasonable, flexible, and able administrator with far more experience in the field of public health than most people know.
It would be appreciated by your friends in Philadelphia if you could give Dr. Koop all the support you can at this crucial time in his career.
Sincerely,
Richard D. Wood
Chairman of the Board
