Mr. Kevles talked about his book, The Baltimore Case: A Trial of Politics, Science, and Character, published by W. W. Norton & Company. The book is the story of the accusations of fraud leveled by Margot O’Toole toward her colleagues, Thereza Imanishi-Kari and Nobel Prize- winner David Baltimore. In the following years, all participants in the investigation were subjected to dehumanizing, humiliating scrutiny--including a congressional inquiry not unlike a mini-witch-hunt--and nasty comments reported by a media eager for a big scientific scandal. close
