Biographical Note or History: Jean Lorenz was a great friend of Lib (Keucher) Gorer during the 1940s at the laboratory. She had graduated from the University of Illinois College of Medicine, Illustration Studio, and came to TJL provide illustrations for the scientists, as well as develop educational materials and exhibits. Dr. Little sent her to Sloan-Kettering Institute when she needed clinical material. At a time when cancer was not understood, her work provided many thousands of people to visualize the disease. After the war she joined the Medical Mission Sisters, and has since lived in Africa.

Scope and Content: The letter contains a few reminiscences of CC Little and life at TJL during “the difficult years.”
