Title:
Letter from Francis Crick to Marshall W. Nirenberg
Description:
In this letter Crick demonstrated his characteristic concern for maintaining social conventions of openness, collegiality, and expeditiousness in communicating scientific ideas among researchers. Only if such conventions were maintained, Crick repeatedly insisted, could priority of scientific discoveries be established, and personal credit and professional esteem be granted accordingly.
