Title

Letter, Richard P. Feynman to Robert E. Marshak, August 17, 1985 (Ms1988-060)

Description

Letter (photocopy) from Richard P. Feynman to Robert E. Marshak, dated August 17, 1985, talking about Feynman's joint paper and relationship with Murray Gell-Mann and giving credit to E. C. George Sudarshan and Marshak for their work. Feynman is likely referencing their work on the V-A theory of weak interactions, which Sudarshan and Marshak first developed and Feynman and Gell-Mann later expanded and published, which in part contributed to the latter two earning Nobel Prizes in Physics. The paper is labeled "MESON50", referencing the Kyoto, Japan, International Symposium celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Meson Theory.
