  • Letter from Dr. C. Lalor Burdick to Dr. James A. Beattie, Professor of Physical Chemistry, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, RE: Received letter from LP requesting early history of x-ray crystallography at Caltech. Informs him thatRoscoe Dickinson and James Ellis were both involved, but they have since passed away. Remembers beginning to build an x-ray spectrometer in 1916 at MIT and working on it with Beattie. Remembers beginning the x-ray work at Caltech around Christmas 1916. Cannot remember whether he brought the x-ray sprectrometer they had built at MIT, or whether he built a new one. Asks Beattie to fill help in fill in the details of these early days. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (B: Correspondence, 1955-1957), #38.1]
  • Letter from Dr. William R. Bergen, Children's Hospital Society of Los Angeles, to Dr. W. Harold Civin, Director of Laboratories, The Queen's Hospital, Hawaii, RE: Apologizes for delay in analyzing the blood sample that Civin sent. Finally found time to perform alkali denaturation. Found 24% fetal hemoglobin by one minute alkali denaturation. After applying Dr. Itane's correction, 30% fetal hemoglobin was found. The sample's hemoglobin-C component was run against its hemoglobin-E component. Substantially more C component was found than fetal component. Concludes that the sample is a mixture of about 60-70% hemoglobin-C and about 30% fetal hemoglobin, with perhaps a small amount of normal hemoglobin.

  • Letter from Robert A. Alberty, Chemistry Dept., University of Wisconsin, to LP RE: Would like to meet with LP on April 8th if possible. Has been studying fumarase and found that the variation in kinetic constants with pH can be represented in terms of the ionization of two groups in the enzymatic state. Equations turn out to be similar to those for hemoglobin. Their theory is that these ionizable groups in fumarase are not accidental bystanders, but that they serve as proton donors and proton acceptors.

  • Letter from Roger Corneliussen, to LP RE: Is a sophomore medical student at Northwestern medical school whose interest in medicine is dwindling. Fascinated with molecular strcuture, force, and their relationship to observable phenomena. Several people have suggested that Caltech is an excellent place to pursue such studies. Encloses his record of grades from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. Requests LP's advice.
