- Letter from LP to Dr. D. C. Mellor, Department of Chemistry, University of Sydney. [Notes from Mellor to LP December 14, 1944, July 16, 1945] [Filed under LP Correspondence: Box #246.7, file:(Mellor, David P.)]

Dr. D. P. Mellor
Department of Chemistry
The University of Sydney
Dear Dr. Mellor:
I was very pleased to hear from you again. Dr. Niemann has returned to Pasadena, and has told us about his visit with you. I shall look forward to reading the account of your work on the light absorption of nickel complexes. Under separate cover I am sending you two copies of my preliminary freshman text. I am planning, as soon as the war is over, to rewrite this little book, and to incorporate in it a number of chapters on descriptive chemistry so as to make it complete. I have been well pleased with the results obtained during the last few years in our freshman course with the use of this book, amplified of course with additional material in the lectures. I enjoy lecturing to the freshmen, and I propose to continue giving these freshman lectures.
It would be fine if Dr. L. E. Sutton were to come to Sydney. If he were to do so, I hope that he would pass through Pasadena. I hope also that it will be possible for you to come here for another stay.
- Letter from Warren C. Lothrop, Technical Aide to Division 19 of the National Defense Research Committee, to Dr. George G. Wright, c/o Dr. A.B. Lamb, Department of Chemistry at Harvard University, cc: Mr. G.A. Richter. Informs him of the changes that have been made to the itinerary from his February 14th letter. Mentions that they have made reservations for him and briefly discusses plans for his visit to Washington. LP Safe: Drawer 3, Folder 3.016
- Note from Fred Allen to LP RE: Informs him that he is seeking other employment, as he has differing views from the department head at Purdue on how to teach introductory courses. Asks if LP has any recommendations of even part-time work. Mentions that LP's work on synthetic plasma made the front page of Allen's local paper.
