I have known Professor P. P. Ewald since 1925, and have during much of this period been in moderately close contact with him.
Ewald knows the history of structural crystallography better than any other man now alive. It was during a discussion of his doctoral thesis with Laue that Laue had the idea of carrying out the original experiment on x-ray diffraction by a crystal. Ewald then developed the fundamental theory of x-ray diffraction, the so-called dynamic theory, simultaneously and independently with Darwin, who was working in England. The development of this theory is the most important contribution to science, in the way of research, that Ewald has made. However, his editorial work has been of very great importance.
Ewald has keen insight and excellent judgment. I am confident that his work on the history and development of structural crystallography will be a sound one.
Also, I think that it is fine that Ewald should be willing to devote a couple of years to this aspect of the history of science. It seems to me that science has become so important a part of the world, especially during recent decades, that a real effort should be made to develop the history of science, including contemporary science, in a thoroughgoing way.
I strongly urge that Ewald be granted a fellowship of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.

Brown to LP RE: Encloses two copies of letters of his letter to the United States Chamber of Commerce and reply, tells about the meetings of the Legal and Legislative Committee he attends, and says he suggested various traditional business ways of cutting costs to the government which maybe LP would be more successful at getting the government to adopt for his research for peace.
