Description: Boris Podolsky was a physicist who, as one of the authors on the original EPR paper, made seminal early contributions to the foundations of quantum mechanics. Later, in 1962, he would be one of the principal organizers of a conference at Xavier University at which Hugh Everett's work was discussed. He and Everett met in New York some time in late 1958 or early 1959; this letter from Everett apologizes for not sending a copy of the long thesis, as presumably Everett promised to do at that meeting.
