This chapter focuses on a move being considered by Stahl that would forestall his intended collaboration with Meselson. He had earlier turned down a position in the department of Geoffrey Brown at the University of Michigan because he felt “the need to get more momentum research-wise before I get hit with teaching duties.” At Berkeley, however, he would do only research. Furthermore, in spite of some misgivings about Stent's recent publications, Stahl regarded him as an extremely bright person near whom it would be good to work. Mindful also of Mary's continued unhappiness in Pasadena, where she could find no entry into a community that seemed to be made up only of scientists and wealthy retirees, Stahl wrote to Wendell Stanley on 30 August that he accepted the Berkeley offer but would defer his move until the following year.
