Letter from Linus Pauling to Ben May. March 13, 1954

Pauling writes thanking May for sending him clippings on sickle cell anemia and inviting him to send clippings on any medical subjects that interest him. He mentions that Itano is being transferred to Bethesda and will be awarded the Eli Lilly Award in Biochemistry for his work on the discovery of abnormal hemoglobin. He states that he is looking for a new field to research after Itano's departure and that he will be giving a Harvey Lecture in New York on he and Itano's abnormal hemoglobin research. He is pleased because money has been donated from Norman Church, the Rockefeller Foundation, and an anonymous donor to build the new chemical biology building.  View Transcript
