Quotes by or related to Simon Flexner

"I went to New York and gave a seminar at the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, in 1936. And at that time, I asked the director, Simon Flexner, to send Alfred Mirsky and his family to Pasadena to be with us for a year, because of my interest in hemoglobin. So Mirsky came. Mirsky was astonished that I would have the temerity to approach Flexner -- I was a brash young man, I think -- and then astonished that it worked out!"
Linus Pauling. Interview by John L. Greenberg, California Institute of Technology Archives Oral Histories Project. May 10, 1984.
