William Lipscomb: Now, his theory of antibodies is wrong, completely wrong. It's not that the antibody
pulls around the antigen. But he produced so much quantitative chemistry with Dan
Campbell, that it gave a quantitative foundation and it was only later that Bunny
Koshland and others had found that this was really genetic programming to get antibodies.
But he stimulated the field enormously. He made Dan Campbell the first professional
professor of immunology in any chemistry department anywhere.
