AMT/K/1/80

TS copy of letter from AMT to R.O. Gandy, whose Ph.D. thesis was supervised by AMT. AMT discusses ROG's Eddington essay; the word 'structure' still causes worries; Bourbaki are unsatisfactory, as they seem to assume that 'A defines a structure on B' is synonymous with 'A is a structure on B'. AMT mentions a discussion on machines (probably a broadcast discussion with Prof. Sir Geoffrey Jefferson, Prof. M.H.A. Newman and R.B. Braithwaite, according to Mrs Turing). Wilmslow. [Early 1952]. 1 sh.
