Intro: Gene therapy was first conceptualized in 1972; Development of gene therapy technology: 1970s and earlier
I've noticed this page doesn't speak of anything prior to 1972 and wonder if the addition of an article by E.L. Tatum in 1966 may be beneficial. In it, he discusses the potential uses of genetic engineering with quite a bit of depth for the time frame.
The article is: Tatum EL. Molecular biology, nucleic acids, and the future of medicine. Perspectives in Biology and Medicine. 1966;10(1):19-32.
