H. Laughlin letter to Walsh, about albinism

[marginalia]A:124-26 June 6, 1938 Dr. Frank B. Walsh, Wilmer Institute, Baltimore, Md. Dear Dr. Walsh: Let me thank you for your letter of June 1st and the enclosure of the pedigree of the [type obscured] family - negro albinos. The family is especially interesting because the girls are albinos and the boys are not. This, however, is probably a coincidence. Still, if a few more families or this sort were found it would be necessary to take the sex-limitation matter more seriously. Dr. Davenport placed the photographs which accompanied his copy of the family history in the archives of this office so that we have access to them. Dr. Davenport has handed me a copy of his letter of June 3 which outlines the further desirable data. Very sincerely, H.H. Laughlin
