There may have been other comments but I guess this will suffice.
These comments by Keith are also noteworthy:
"I haven't researched the extent of his relationships with the companies, he gave me the impression that he was strongly opposed to any reporting embargo that is often imposed if we take corporate money to fund academic research. As such, Jack once told me that some of the money to support his research actually came from his family's own personal funds."
If this "sense" that Jack was opposed to reporting embargos has it's roots in the latter half of the last century, then it must have been a very significant and enduring issue to Dr. Mitchell, as it was his empassioned plea to Dr. Mees that the important work of Dr. Lowe was brought to the public, and that was in the very early 50's.
