Franklin D. Roosevelt to Winston Churchill (October 11, 1941)
October 11, 1941.
My dear Mr. Churchill:-
It appears desirable that we should soon correspond or converse concerning the subject which is under study by your MAUD committee, and by Dr. Bush's organization in this country, in order that any extended efforts may be coordinated or even jointly conducted. I suggest, for identification, that we refer to this subject as MAUDSON.
I send this message by Mr. Hovde, head of the London office of our scientific organization, as he can, if necessary, identify the subject more explicitly, or answer your questions concerning the form of organization by which it is now being handled in this country.
With every good wish,
Prime Minister of Great Britain,
10 Downing Street,
