Scope/Content: Hugh Everett was supported in graduate school by an NSF graduate research fellowship. One requirement of maintaining the fellowship were periodic updates from Everett and his adviser, John Wheeler. Here Wheeler writes to the NSF to reaffirm his support of Everett's fellowship. It includes a very positive appraisal of Everett and his thesis, immediately after Wheeler's return to Leiden from Copenhagen. Scope/Content: This document is a reproduction of a document found in the John A. Wheeler papers at the American Philosophical Society.
