Letter from Francis Crick to the Editor of The Sciences


Title:
Letter from Francis Crick to the Editor of The Sciences
Description:
As this short note illustrates, Crick and Watson have struggled on several occasions over the course of their careers to fully assess the contribution to the exposition of the DNA double helix made by Rosalind Franklin, on whose experimental evidence they relied without her knowledge. Even here, Crick cited the words of Aaron Klug, Franklin's former collaborator, rather than use his own words, to clarify a potentially misleading statement Crick had made about Franklin's approach to science in in his retrospective, "How to Live With a Golden Helix" (The Sciences, vol. 19, Sept. 1979, pp. 6-9).
