My attention has been drawn by correspondents to two incorrect statements in my article "Research and Politics" (Science, March 4, 1949). First, it was stated that Vavilov died in a concentration camp. This should have read "died in exile in a remote region of the USSR," since the details are unknown. Second, I said that Kammerer committed suicide after going to Russia. Actually, he did so while still in Vienna, at the moment when he was finally to move to Moscow.
