Scope/Content: By March of 1957, Hugh Everett and John Wheeler had already completed the extensive revisions that cut the long thesis down to the final, short version that was ultimately accepted. Here Wheeler asks Everett to distribute the revised version of the thesis, along with Wheeler's own commentary on Everett's work, to various physicists. It is clear that Everett is nearly finished at this point, as Wheeler is encouraging him to pay his remaining fees and schedule his final examination. Scope/Content: This document was found in the basement of Mark Everett in 2007 by Mark Everett and Peter Byrne.
