Description
This is a letter written by Peter Drucker for Mel Hurni. Drucker says the paper was excellent and that Hurni should publish it. However, he feels the title should change from "Limitations of Management Science" to "Characteristics of Management Science". Drucker believes this is an important change because the "imperfections" of involving human judgement and risk-taking are what make management science distinct from "natural science". This letter contains handwritten notes and an original signature.
