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.
