This is an interview of Dr. William Walter, who played key roles in the grants-funded areas of the NCI, taken on April 21, 1995. The interviewer is Dr. Carl G. Baker, former Director of the National Cancer Institute.
Baker: Bill, before we go a little further, would you give us a little bit of your background and where you went to school and so on?
Walter: Probably not.
Baker: So, I was trying to make the point that if we had to have Cancer Control again, we should emphasize those areas where there was a shortage of control capabilities and hence special needs for more research, and it seemed to me that the rehabilitation area was a special one. I still think that's true.
