Dear Mrs. Lasker:
Congratulations on that Edward R. Murrow interview! It was great and Mrs. Lyons and I believe it will help health research all the way down the line.
I was particularly impressed by your remarks about the importance of research by the individual health agencies. This has always been a difficult situation for most health agencies because contributors seem to wonder why it is necessary to collect so much money when the Federal Government is contributing large sums for the National Institutes.
Some day when you have a chance, I would like you to write a letter to me on this subject emphasizing the importance of research by voluntary organizations, I would then try to circulate this among our affiliates so that they, in turn, can assure people that we never have enough money from the Federal or voluntary standpoint for research.
With kindest personal regards,
Harry Lyons
Director
Legal and Legislative Dept.
