Thanks for checking. Several folks have been trying to help, but we couldn't pin anything down. One of my colleagues is going to try a direct contact request via UC Santa Cruz (professor emerita).

I'll post if he hears anything.

[EXTERNAL SENDER - PROCEED CAUTIOUSLY]


Sandra,

I spent some time today looking for this quotation today. It is widely
quoted but never cited from a source. I did find this LibGuide dedicated to
Davis: https://guides.library.cornell.edu/davis

I hope this helps. Have a good weekend!

Sincerely,

Miranda
