Maize genetics in the U.S.S.R.

American maize geneticists will be glad to learn that an active group of workers in maize genetics is springing up in the U.S.S.R. This work is under the direction of M. I. Hadjinov. We have received the following letters from him which are transcribed here for your information.

"Your letter of November 13, 1933 I received only 13th January, 1934. I am enclosing herewith information about our works on the maize genetics. I hope it will be of some value though strongly delayed.

During the last 2-3 years we have carried out this work some results of which will be shortly published. The greater part of them I am sending you today.

I should be much obliged if you would kindly send me the mimeographed circulars of the Cornell University on maize genetics and also some genetics stocks.

I should like to ask you if you would find it possible to send me also numbers of circulars previously years of which I possess only that of 1930 "Linkage in Maize".

I wish to state that I am familiar with the Chromosome Map in the report of Prof. R. A. Emerson on the VIth Genetic Congress.

Dr. G. D. Karpetchenko asks me to send his best wishes to you.

Yours sincerely,
(Signed) M. I. Hadjinov."
