SUBJECT Nomination of Harvey Itano
I have prepared a nomination of Harvey Itano for the Theobald Smith Award ($1000 and a bronz [sic] medal) which will be presented
to someone during the Association's 122nd meeting, to be held in Atlanta, Georgia, this December. Would you he willing to
prepare a letter supporting the nomination, in which you stress the nominee's personality, training, and research work?
I think that in particular a statement such as you have made to me orally about the high opinion in which Dr. Itano is held
personally by members of your Division of Biology would be especially needed. I should like to have seven signed copies
of your letter. I enclose a draft of the nomination that I have prepared.
