Description: Letter from Dr. Meyer Bodansky to Dr. Frank J. Heck, who is from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. The letter, which is dated October 18, 1939, discloses the account of a mother and her young boy who was diagnosed with leukemia. Dr. Bodansky explains that he is trying to help the mother, who insists on going to a known "charlatan" physician, who falsely claims that the boy has malaria. Dr. Bodansky describes some of the boy's blood tests and informs Dr. Heck that he has enclosed two smears with the letter to examine. Dr. Bodansky requests that Dr. Heck feel free to comment or advise on the issue.
