This chapter describes the arrival of a new research fellow in the Standardization Department from the new world. Twenty-two-year-old Karl Gordon Lark had just completed his Ph.D. with one of America's leading immunologists, Alwin Pappenheimer, at New York University. A couple of years earlier, Lark had attended the bacteriophage course at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and had met Ole Maaloe, who had told him that Copenhagen was a nice place to in which to spend a couple of years if one had a Rockefeller fellowship in one's pocket. Lark arrived at an auspicious time. Maaloe had left his studies of bacteriophage in favor of the host cell and, inspired by recently published studies of phases in the division of eukaryotic cells, had decided to explore the synthesis of DNA during the division of bacterial cells, something that required access to a bacterial colony in which all the cells divided synchronously.
