Page 1Letter from Linus Pauling to William G. Esmond. October 23, 1972.
Pauling writes to discuss his recollection of the history of his and Harvey Itano's
research on the sickling of erythrocytes containing ferrohemoglobin. Citing from
numerous publications that he co-authored, Pauling concludes that he had begun investigations
into the inhibition of sickling through the partial transformation of ferrous sickle
hemoglobin to ferric methemoglobin well before having received a letter from Esmond
in 1954, indicating Esmond's inclinations toward research of a similar nature. Transcript.
