Scope/Content: Around 1988, Bryce DeWitt was asked to referee a paper by an author who argued that that DeWitt's version of Hugh Everett's theory was not true to Everett's original work. In his referee report, DeWitt offers to "set the record straight" about his interpretation of Everett's work. This is a copy of DeWitt's referee report. A version of the reviewed paper was subsequently published in 1990 in the American Journal of Physics. At the request of the DeWitt estate, the name of the author of the paper has been redacted.
