Description/Abstract:
THIS ONE-PAGE TYPEWRITTEN DOCUMENT APPEARS TO BE A LOG OF A TELEPHONE CALL FROM DR. GEORGE V. LEROY, UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO, TO DR. SIDNEY MARKS (AED DBER) ON APRIL 26, 1974 CONCERNING INFORMATION FROM THE HOSPITAL CHART OF CAL-2. ALTHOUGH NO AUTHOR IS INDICATED, IT APPEARS TO BE A DRAFT WRITTEN BY DR. MARKS. HANDWRITTEN NOTES ARE INCLUDED ON THE DOCUMENT. DURING THE INTERVIEW OF DR. LEROY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO BY DR. LEON O. JACOBSON ON APRIL 16, 1974, DR. LEROY WAS ASKED TO EXAMINE THE HOSPITAL RECORDS ON CHICAGO CASES CAL-1 AND CAL-2. THIS CALL WAS TO INFORM AEC ON TWO RELEVANT PIECES OF INFORMATION FOUND ON CAL-2. FIRST, AN ENTER BY A MEDICAL STUDENT NOTED THAT THE FAMILY WAS ANXIOUS FOR THE PATIENT TO BE STARTED ON PLUTONIUM TREATMENT. THE AUTHOR NOTES THAT THE PATIENT WAS DYING OF CANCER AND THIS NOTATION MAY INDICATE EITHER THAT THE PATIENT OR FAMILY HAD BEEN INFORMED THAT THE PATIENT WAS TO RECEIVE A PLUTONIUM TREATMENT, OR THAT THE PATIENT OR FAMILY WAS TOLD THAT THE PATIENT WAS TO HAVE SOME KIND OF TREATMENT, WHICH THE MEDICAL STUDENT KNEW TO BE PLUTONIUM. SECOND, A NOTE WAS FOUND IN THE CHART INDICATING THAT "U" MEDICINE HAD BEEN INITIATED. NO DATE FOR THIS ADMINISTRATION WAS NOTED. DR. LEROY HAD NOT YET GOTTEN THE CHART FOR CAL-1 SINCE IT WAS MICROFILMED AND WOULD TAKE ABOUT ONE WEEK TO OBTAIN.
