November 26, 1945
Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer
Nuclear Advisory Committee
I have sent you separately the account of a meeting of a nuclear committee
(a very informal one, with no official standing at the Institute), and a report made
to this committee.
A confidential report was also made. I shall give you a copy of this report
If there is any information that you, as the Chairman of the new Nuclear
Advisory Committee formed by action of the Executive Committee of the Institute would
like to have, please let me know.
Professor Yost has recommended that Gerhart Friedlander of Los Alamos be
invited to visit the Institute, in order that he might be considered for appointment.
Would it be possible for your Nuclear Advisory Committee to consider this recommendation?
I enclose the letter sent to me by Professor Yost.
