MELVIN CALVIN
The Nobel Prize winner sends a not in response to a letter
Autograph Note signed: "M. Calvin", 1p, 8½x11. Calvin responds in the lower margin of a typed letter from an admirer, dated 1993 January 12, to the question of why he chose his career field. In full: "I just wanted to be sure of a means of earning a living." Labeled "Mr. Photosynthesis" by Time magazine in 1961, Calvin (1911-1997) was awarded the 1961 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for using radioactive carbon-14 to show steps by which plants turn carbon dioxide and water into sugar during photosynthesis. Today this process is known as the "Calvin Cycle" in photosynthesis. Horizontal and vertical mailing folds. Creased at edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
