Description
Scope/Content: In spring of 1956, John Wheeler was in residence at the Lorentz Institute in Leiden, Netherlands. In April, 1956 a copy of the long version of Hugh Everett's thesis was sent to Neils Bohr's Institute; the next month, Wheeler traveled to Copenhagen to discuss the thesis with Bohr and others. Wheeler left Copenhagen with the strong conviction that Everett needed to go to Copenhagen himself. The visit did not occur until 1959, though Wheeler seems optimistic that Everett will be able to travel immediately.
Scope/Content: This document is a reproduction of a document found in the John A. Wheeler papers at the American Philosophical Society.
