Dear Dr. Waterman:
I submit herewith an application to the National Science Foundation for a grant for support of research on configurations
of polypeptide chains in proteins.
I think that the success that has been obtained in the investigations along this line during recent years indicates that
further progress can be made. The problem of determining the structure of proteins is, or course, a very difficult one, and
it is hard to predict what can be done; nevertheless, I feel optimistic about it.
