Genesis of the Salk Institute

Suzanne Bourgeois

University of California Press

In 1964, a remarkable neurobiology colloquium brought Leslie Orgel and Renato Dulbecco to our barracks; their backgrounds are summarized. Leo Szilard passed away in May, and his memorial was held in our unfinished courtyard. In 1965, a historic antibody workshop was organized, where molecular biologists joined immunologists. The Harvard neurobiology group of Steve Kuffler was interested in moving into our available laboratory space, but our financial situation was disastrous. Augustus Kinzel was brought in as president of the institute to organize fundraising. In 1967, a colloquium on development brought Daniel Lehrman and Eric Lenneberg, who introduced us to development of behavior and of language. However, the anti–Vietnam War and the counterculture movements created incidents that forced Kinzel’s resignation.
