December 31, 1930
Mr. A. R. Goldfarb,
6150 Greenwood Ave.,
Dear Mr. Goldfarb:
If you desire to come to Pasadena next year, I suggest that you apply for a Teaching Fellowship in Chemistry. I must tell you, however, that the number of fellowships available is very small, for the reason that only a few men will finish their work and leave, and the laboratory is now very much overcrowded, with no relief in sight until after next year.
This crowded condition also limits our facilities for experimental work. It would not be possible to install a special X-ray apparatus for your work, and the available apparatus, designed for use with minerals and inorganic crystals, might not be suitable. Moreover, the training which graduate students are given here is rather specialized, and I doubt that a year's work added to the two you have at Chicago would be considered sufficient for a Ph.D. If you can obtain your degree in a year at Chicago, I recommend that you plan to come here later, as a National Research Fellow, say. There should then be available more extensive laboratory facilities, too.
Very truly yours,
- Letter from LP to James S. Thompson, VP of the McGraw-Hill Book Company Inc. RE: LP suggests creating an International Series in Theoretical Chemistry which is to be comprised of a series of advance text-books and monographs in chemistry. LP lists some representative topics and suggests men who would be competent enough to right about them.
