  • Letter from Leonard May, ACS Member to LP RE: Discusses the issue around Ralph Spitzer and his connection to the Lysenko theory of genetics and his dismissal from Oregon State College. Feels the “freedom of inquiry is grossly restricted at Oregon State and urges that unless Dr. Spitzer is reinstated, the qualifications of this university to remain on the list of ACS-sponsored and approved institutions be reinvestigated and it be removed from this list unless it plays the game according to the traditions of academic freedom”.
