Letter from Francis Crick to James D. Watson


Title:
Letter from Francis Crick to James D. Watson
Description:
In this letter Crick bemoaned that "[a]lmost all my own early correspondence was thrown away without my knowledge by an over-efficient Secretary . . .". The reference in the last sentence was to a revision in the British tax laws that for the first time subjected foreign honoraria and other income earned abroad to income tax, unless the taxpayer was employed full-time abroad. The change in tax laws, which reduced a source of income with which British scientists had long supplemented their modest salaries, was quoted in the press as one of the reasons for Crick's decision in 1977 to relocate permanently to southern California.
