You've always expressed this point of view to me.
People think of me as somebody who's interested in planting
trees in the streets of New York.
You've always expressed this opinion to me for the last 12 years
and it's always amazed me.
Well, there are some doctors who know but very few, very few,
and none of them know the extent of what I've done. Nobody. Really
the only place you can find it is in this Oral History.
This record -- well, thank God for that.
Then in other matters --
I would like to ask several questions that relate to this whole
subject. Last year, the Lasker Award was given to Dr. Robert Good
because of the development of this new approach to cancer.
Immunology. Would you talk about that a little bit?
Well, he has made some progress in the field, but actually
he's done practically nothing clinically, at least had not when he
was given the award. His work was largely inthelaboratory, and I do think
he's impressed a great many people. I do think his work is important.
But it has not yet turned out to have big payoffs in cancer clinically
that I have yet heard about.
Is this one of the areas that the new cancer setup will deal with?
