Mr. Watson Davis, Director
Science Service
2101 Constitution Avenue
Washington, D. C.

Dear Mr. Davis:

I send you herewith photographic copies of an exhibit which we contributed to the recent meeting of the American Photographic Society of America, at their request, to inform the Technical Section on how photographs are transmitted by radio.

It occurred to me that you might like to have picture record of this step-by-step process in your file, and that the series might have some interest to you as a timely subject because of the present, intensive use of the service in connection with the Coronation.

With best regards,
Sincerely,
/s/ Lee Galvin
