Letter from Alvin F. Coburn to Oswald T. Avery

Title:
Letter from Alvin F. Coburn to Oswald T. Avery
Description:
In this letter Coburn--an associate of both Avery and noted English bacteriologist Fred Griffith--thanks Avery for his recent visit to the Coburn home. One of the first to hear of Avery, MacLeod, and McCarty's discovery that DNA was the transforming substance, Coburn also made a gift to Avery of a photo of Griffith, whose work on bacterial transformation initiated Avery's interest on the subject. Griffith was killed early in World War II when his laboratory was destroyed during an air raid.
