Linus Pauling (1901-1994), a 1922 OSU graduate and the only recipient of two unshared
Nobel Prizes, (Chemistry, 1954; Peace, 1962) undertook a wide range of studies during
his seventy-year career as a scientist, humanitarian and peace activist. The collection,
comprised of over five hundred thousand items, contains all of Pauling's personal
and scientific papers, research materials, correspondence, photographs, awards, and
memorabilia. Not only does the Pauling archive reflect Linus Pauling's long and varied
scientific career, the presence of Ava Helen Pauling's (1903-1981) papers also indicates
their mutual devotion to world peace and to each other.
