Linus Pauling: I didn't see him very much after the war, rather few times and sometimes when we
went to the meetings in Princeton of the Einstein Committee usually we would see,
the members of the committee would see Oppenheimer. He would come in for a few minutes,
we went to his house once or twice after the meeting. I didn't have as close a relationship
with him as I had had in the late 1920s and early 1930s. He was, of course, a brilliant
man with very wide interests, interests in all aspects of the world and with great
ability. I, he made some important contributions to science. I think that he could
have made more if he, his attention had been concentrated on science more thoroughly
that it was.
