Linus Pauling: Well, next of course is G.N. Lewis's famous 1916 paper. In it he said electrons in most atoms can be put at the corners of a cube, that sometimes these cubes share edges with one another, not corners but edges, a pair of electrons. Shortly after that he got around to saying that the chemical bond consisted of two electrons held jointly by two atoms. He emphasized partial ionic character of bonds, partial polar character.
