Matthew Meselson and Arthur Westing to Stanley Auerbach in 1970

A letter from Matthew Meselson and Arthur Westing, written to ESA President Stanley Auerbach on behalf of AAAS in 1970, requests help in developing a study on the military use of herbicides in Vietnam. Enclosed was information about the extent of herbicide use, a bibliography, and questions the study hoped to answer. (Stanley Auerbach papers)

We hope to include both short and long range consequences within the broad areas of ecology, public health and human welfare… We ask for your help in this project. Specifically, we seek your advice on what specific questions the study should (and could) be designed to answer.
