I've learned more about my father's interest in hematology from reading this [Dr. Tullis's oral history], than I did from talking with him during his life. I know that he was very dedicated to ASH and would have been pleased that your group has undertaken this project. I'm looking forward to perusing the memoires of all of the outstanding physicians included.

Dr. Tullis and my father, Allen Latham, Jr., worked together on research with the original Cohn blood fractionator. I dated and eventually married Dr. Tullis' daughter Virginia, but it was only several weeks after we started dating that our parents realized it was that Tullis and that Latham.

What a great man. He is my husband's grandfather. Just to be in the family of this man is an honor.

I have greatly enjoyed learning about what encouraged my grandfather to pursue the field of hematology as well as what most influenced his career development. Thank you for making this available to those of us who are interested professionally and/or personally!

Reading about Grandpa's career was a real treat, because as a true crusty Bostonian--proud but humble--he would have thought it bad form to ever talk about his own considerable accomplishments. (Unfortunately, I managed to inherit none of his scientific acumen and all of his hairline.) Reading this article made me remember how much I miss him and my grandmother, to whom he was married over 50 years. Thank you.
