Letter from Francis Crick to Lord Charles Percy Snow


Title:
Letter from Francis Crick to Lord Charles Percy Snow
Description:
The lecture to which Crick referred in this letter was in part a response to the work of William Shockley and, particularly, of Arthur Jensen on what they considered the biological basis for differences in educational and economic achievement among different racial groups. Crick's usage of racial designations followed conventions still prevailing in the 1960s.
