Page 1Letter from Emile Zuckerkandl to Linus Pauling. September 3, 1964.
Zuckerkandl writes to discuss the progress that has been made on his chemical paleogenetics
paper and to discuss a recent scientific meeting held at Rutgers University. Zuckerkandl
requests that Pauling add further details related to "the question of back mutations,"
and lays out his own thinking with regard to this subject. Zuckerkandl closes by mentioning
an encounter with Dr. Jennings of the Office of Naval Research who, to Zuckerkandl's
surprise, inquired into the details of Pauling's research funding status. [Published
