To the Editor.—
In the Nov 19,1973, issue of The Journal (226:1009, 1973), Dr. Paul Wolf of Stanford University had a letter published purporting to describe a new method to identify cryptococcal infection.In all fairness to Dr. R. A. Vogel, you should be aware that he reported this method initially in 1958 and again in 1961 and 1966. Some of the publications in this area are presented.1-4I think this should be brought to the attention of your readers so that the primary investigator receives credit for his work.
