LMB 365 – Day 278

On day 278 of #LMB365 we show how John Kendrew and Max Perutz received news of their 1962 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. At the time the telegram was the best way for Stockholm to contact the recipients. This was the LMB’s second Nobel for 1962, Francis Crick and James Watson had already been awarded the Physiology and Medicine Prize for their work on the structure of DNA
