Harvard University Medical School Department of Biological Chemistry Boston, Massachusetts April 18, 1943 Professor Charles R Keyes Mt Vernon, Iowa Dear Professor Keyes, In a Cornell College Bulletin which came to my attention just recently I noted a photograph with you together with some comments on your recent activities. These have impelled me to send a brief note of felicitation. Well I do recall many instances when I benefited from contact with you as a student. Also I remember my good fortune in having been in the audience at the Harvard Commencement when the doctor's degree was conferred upon you, and afafterwards I found you and through your courtesy was introduced to the first Harvard alumni exercises that I had witnessed. These are vivid and pleasant recollections. In conclusion, I express the hope that this will find you in comfortable health and I am certain that it will find you with a surplus of interesting things to do. Sincerely yours Harry C. Trimble
