Working on the digitization of the James D. Watson Collection I have literally looked at thousands of documents and while all are of historical note and interest, I have kept note of items that exhibit extraordinary humor. The following items, by themselves, speak volumes about James D. Watson’s relationships with friends and fellow colleagues.
A letter from Francis Crick to James D. Watson in which Crick points out just a few problems he has found in Watson’s speech given at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
Just another note from Boris Ephrussi to James D. Watson.
Dale Purves picks up on a Trivial Pursuit fact gone awry. Perhaps you know the correct year?
Letter from James D. Watson’s lawyer Ephraim London to Ed Gilbert regarding copyright, Crick dolls, and Super-Watson sweatshirts!
