[John Notter] of the Ludwig Foundation.

Q:

What is the Ludwig Foundation?

Lasker:

It has three billion dollars.

Q:

Three billion?

Lasker:

It will eventually have three billion, on the death of Mr. D. K. Ludwig.

Q:

Is this a U. S. Foundation?

Lasker:

No but he has all his money that he intends to leave to it out of the United States. So Leeds Castle was interested in developing a research project that Ludwig would support, and that is something we're still trying to do through a man that is presumably managing it, sort of the executive of it, a Mr. Notter. I hope to see him in England this fall.

Leeds Castle, we were able to arrange an international meeting through the National Cancer Institute, our National Cancer Institute, between the Americans and British. It's going to take place the 7th of October. And the great thing that I feel about Leeds Castle is not only it's marvelously beautiful -- I think I have a picture of it here.

Q:

You gave me a folder on it last year.

Lasker:

Just now?

Q:

Last year.
