From: Sime Surgeon

Sime Surgeon, the story and be seen here:

A town in the Sime half of what had once been Leander Field. Gens were donating selyn at Eastfield in preference to Westfield Hospital.

A border city, on southernmost edge of Gen Territory dividing Westfield and Eastfield sime Territories.  A port-of-entry and locus of two universities, a huge manufacturing complex where research and development abound, and a thriving arts center located around the border.  An interface where Sime~Gen interaction has produced tremendously fertile advances in science, technology and the arts.   (Source:  Index card file.  WESTFIELD -- Sime Surgeon -- early draft)

(Source:  Index card file.  HISTORY OF WESTFIELD -- Sime Surgeon -- early draft)  After the Leander Revolt, 200 kilometer wide corrridor down center of Territory given to Gens.  All evidence of sime occupation and construction removed in one half of Territory.  The two Territories became Eastfield and Westfield.

Several Sime~Gen interfaces had developed in this corridor:  "tremendously fertile advances in science, technology, and the arts."

Border City Westfield:  Southernmost edge of the corridor, port-of-entry, two universities, huge manufacturing complex --- lots of research and development.  thriving arts center.

Need for an access road across the corridor to link the border cities.

(Source:  Index card file, WESTFIELD, Attributed to Jacqueline Lichtenberg -- June 17, 1977)  Speculation:  Westfield oldest of the border cities, existing before the border cut through it.  Probably an all sime city in-Territory, when the War settled, the Gens took half (like Berlin or Jerusalem.)
