Autograph letter signed, thanking a journalist for a cartoon.31 April 1969 Stock Code: 141430
Autograph letter signed from the 1967 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine, George Wald, to the journalist Ray Gardner (1919-1997), journalist and editor at the Toronto Star, thanking him for a cartoon. "Dear Mr Gardner, At last I know whom to thank for that wonderful cartoon. It is just perfect for my second talk, the one at Chicago. I've given the text to the Globe, & told them to get in touch with you on the cartoon. It would run so well under some such head as: We've Become Dinosaurs Again - Many thanks - George Wald".
Autograph letter signed on Wald's letterhead, stapled to the original envelope addressed to Gardner in Wald's hand.
Light soiling to envelope, else in excellent condition.
