Letter from Linus Pauling to George Burch. May 25, 1949.
Pauling writes to provide further details concerning his previous request that Dr. Burch send him large quantities of sickle cell blood for use in research at Caltech. Specifically, Pauling describes a proposed method for shipping the blood which, in his and Harvey Itano's estimation, will safeguard the integrity of the blood during its transit from New Orleans to Pasadena. Pauling adds that his enthusiasm for their current results is such that he hopes to expand his program to include investigations of other red cell abnormalities, and asks Burch to "keep on the lookout" for potential ovalocytosis and Mediterranean anemia samples.
