Letter from James D. Watson to Francis Crick


Title:
Letter from James D. Watson to Francis Crick
Description:
This letter was written at the outset of the conflict between Watson and Crick over the publication of Watson's account of their discovery of the double helix. In his letter Watson also reported recent protein sequencing data, the kinds of established scientific communication that for the next year and a half was to be pushed aside by the controversy over Watson's book.
