TitleLetter from Edward Charles Dodds, on a paper 'The growth-inhibitory and carcinogenic properties of 4-aminostilbene and derivatives' by Alexander Haddow, R J C Harris, George Armand Robert Kon and E M F Roe to the Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society
Date9 October 1947
DescriptionThe paper 'raises a problem which is difficult to settle' The work is of value but is negative and it is unlikely that a chemical reader would be interested in all parts of it. He isn't sure of what to do with the mass of observation as it would be a pity to lose it. A micro-film of the whole paper could be made and deposited in the archives.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions A, 1948].
