Quotes by or related to William Foster

"I consider that the field of work in which Dr. Pauling is engaged, namely the study of the chemical bond and of valence from the standpoint of modern physics, is the most important line of research in theoretical chemistry today; and I venture to believe that there is no one in the world who in the same degree has chemical background and at the same time has the physical knowledge, mathematical power, and originality required for the handling of this problem."
A. A. Noyes. Letter to William Foster. October 15, 1931.
