Scope/Content: Sometime in January of 1957, Hugh Everett and John Wheeler revised the long form of Everett's thesis to produce a document that Wheeler though would be more acceptable to the wider community. Around the same time, Wheeler wrote an assessment of Everett's work that helped to defend and motivate Everett's thesis, intended to be published alongside the new, shorter version of the thesis. This work was done by early March, when Wheeler recommended that Everett distribute the new version of the thesis, along with Wheeler's assessment, to a long list of prominent physicists, and scheduled the oral thesis defense. Before the defense could happen, however, Everett needed to submit the final version of the thesis to his committee. This document reflects the two thesis readers' appraisal. (The second page is the results of the oral examination.)
Scope/Content: This document is a reproduction of a document held at Mudd Library, Princeton.
