Scope/Content: Douglas Scalapino was professor of physics at University of California, Santa Barbara and co-founder of the Institute for Theoretical Physics (now the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics). He seems to have written to Wheeler for comments on the Institute's direction. Wheeler approves of whatever he sent, but also recommends that the Institute promote research on the measurement problem. It is notable that he also suggests that Everett might be a good person for the Institute to hire, and even indicates that Everett might be willing to go, at least temporarily.
