Bangladesh (formerly East Pakistan) Agricultural University, Mymensingh, Bangladesh, 1965-1975


 

"It was during that time [mid 1960s] that Rudolph was offered a job doing the East Pakistan Agricultural University in what is now Bangladesh. He had done some preliminaries for it, but had not gotten very far. He was getting busy. He wasn’t sure if he wanted to do it. He asked me about it. I said I thought it was important to do it – to do a good job. He signed a contract, I think kind of reluctantly. I think he really did it because he thought it would be good for me. We started working on it." 

 

"...Rudolph never saw it. He was in Dhaka a couple of times and each time he made a point of telling me he did not visit it. He had a funny relationship to the project."
