  • Letter from Arthur Linz, Vice-President, Climax Molybdenum Company to Beatrice Wulf, LP's secretary RE: Replies he may not be in Pasadena on the 26th or 27th of January.

[Letters from Wulf to Linz December 27, 1949, January 4, 1950] [Filed under LP Correspondence Box: #71, file:(Climax Molybdenum Company, 1948-1949)]
  • Letter from Henri A. Levy, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, to LP RE: States that he enjoyed LP's recent visit and agrees to keep LP updated on Dr. Swartout's progress on obtaining security clearance for LP. Discusses plans for the Symposium on Modern Chemistry and invites LP to spend as much of the summer as he would like at Oak Ridge. Mentions potential places for his family to stay and visit if they come with LP.

  • Letter from LP to C. B. van Niel telling van Niel that to reliably test for such minute amounts of tungsten would be difficult to impossible and that a calorimetric or spot test might be more sensitive. Dr. van Niel could also add tungstic acid in equal parts to the molybdic acid, for more molybdinum would be required in the presence of more tungsten. [Reply to van Niel November 28, 1949]
  • Letter from LP to Dr. C. B. Van Niel [addressed: “Dear Kees”], Hopkins Marine Station, RE: Apologizes for his late reply. Discusses the finer points of performing an experiment of spectroscopic analysis for tungsten. Suggests other methods of experimentation to find the same information. [Note from C. B. Van Niel to LP November 28, 1949] [Filed under LP Correspondence: #423.1]
  • Letter from LP to Dr. Lewis E. Miller RE: States that the requested information can be found in “The Nature of the Chemical Bond” as well as in several papers, one of which he will send. [Letter from Miller to LP December 16, 1949] [Filed under LP Correspondence: Box #255.16, file:(M: Correspondence, 1949)]
  • Letter from LP to Dr. Louis Slichter, Dept. of Geophysics, U.C.L.A., RE: Recommends inviting Dr. Oliver Wulf and Prof. John G. Kirkwood to the January conference. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (S: Correspondence, 1949), #378.3]
  • Letter from LP to W.H. Freeman, W.H. Freeman and Co., RE: LP says that he has sent on all the figures except the color plates, which Hayward is still working on. He adds that it will be necessary to check the figure numbers in Chapter 31. [Filed under LP Manuscripts of Books, 1950b1.1]
