10 November 1956
Dear Mamma & Daddy,
Thank you for your letter of the 5th Nov. & for the cheque, which of shall keep for the
The term here ends the 12th Dec & begins the 9th Jan, & I could be a few days late, so physically I could be a month.
As to my worth to the Institute, I am fairly sure that John Kendrew or David Green or
llie Arndt would come for a month on the same terms, and they know more about many things
than I. I pay attention to technical details, but he Ullie has built a county spectrometer & two
rotating anode x-ray tubes.
Getting stuff done at Caltech briefly involves persuading Holmes, and while I may have a
better chance of doing that than most, I do not know that I could manage much.
I am quite willing to come & quite willing to work as hard as I can & do as much as I
can. Still, I do not know that this is not a racket, and I do not see that I should have to decide
whether it is or not. I think it is up to the Department to decide whether they want me, though I
am willing to do what I can.
Otto Bastinsen has just shown up to see Katie Lonsdale. I shall take him home
tomorrow. Julie has a cold & sore throat, poor girl.
- Note from Wilbert A. Sandstrom, student at St. Olaf College, to LP RE: Discusses his interest in the study of cell aging. Requests LP's advice in deciding what institution would be best fitted to do such research.
