Interview #22, Part II
I want to open this session with a quotation from that
remarkable script about your life, which was read and presented
Oh, yes, did that amuse you?
...at the Lord and Taylor Rose Award. Yes, it certainly did.
But there's a quotation I want to use, and this is: “Being with
her (that is, Mary) is like being on vacation. Your head is clear
of petty troubles and you can take on something new.” And I begin
that because that has been my experience, too.
Oh, that's wonderful.
I think we should begin by perhaps some continuity with a few
of the things you mentioned last time. For instance, in 1981 you
told me that Hoffmann-LaRoche had purified leukocyte interferon
through collaboration with Genentech of California.
They had indeed.
That is, through the efforts of John Burns. And in the doing
they learned that there were at least 12 different sub-species
to leukocyte. Well, I wondered what has evolved from that.
