Reading a symposium is like enjoying a banquet via radio. Participation would be so much more satisfying! But the printed word in this book conveys a very good idea of the substance, if not of the savor, of the intellectual . The Savor is, of course, the inspiration of personal contacts with not only the principal speakers but with the moderators, the organizers and the audience. The Substance is presented, as a tribute to the life and work (up to his 70th birthday, so far) of Dr. Selman A. Waksman, founder of the Institute of Microbiology at Rutgers, in the form of 7 lectures: 1. Microbial Biochemistry and Its Development, J. H. Quastel; 2. Antibiotics—A New Field for Microbiological Research and Perspectives for the Future, H. Boyd Woodruff; 3. Episodes in Immunochemistry, Michael Heidelberger; 4. Bacterial Classification—Problems and Developments, S. T. Cowan; 5. Some Contributions of Genetics to Microbiology, Vernon Bryson; 6. Aspects of Russian Microbiology, George K. Skriabin; 7. Microbiology—Yesterday and Today, Selman A. Waksman.
