Letter from David H. Hubel to Marshall W. Nirenberg


Title:
Letter from David H. Hubel to Marshall W. Nirenberg
Description:
Hubel informs Nirenberg that as President of the Society for Neuroscience he has decided to "concentrate on offensive tactics, rather than to limit myself to fighting brush fires" caused by animal activists. He contrasts the boldness with which the Surgeon General Koop addressed smoking and the reluctance with which he dealt with the animal rights question. Hubel asks for Nirenberg's opinion on the idea of writing a letter to Koop signed by Nobel Prize winners urging him to take a more active stance on the issue.
