  • Letter from Dr. J.W. Linnett, Laboratory of Physical Chemistry, University of Oxford, to LP RE: Thanks LP for his letter of congratulations regarding his election to the Royal Society. It was pleasant to be elected at the same time as Sandy Ogsten. Sends his belated congratulations on LP's receipt of the Nobel Prize. [Letter from LP to Linnett May 19, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (L: Correspondence, 1955-1960), #231.1]
  • Letter from LP to Dr. Cannon C. Hearne, Director, Foreign Training Division, Foreign Agricultural Service, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, RE: LP expects to be in Pasadena during May 14-18, when Vargas plans to visit Caltech. Professor Laszlo Zechmeister and Dr. Walter S. Schroeder will also be at Caltech at that time and can talk with Vargas about chromatography. While their plans may change before that time, at least two of the three men should be available, so the proposed dates are convenient. [Letter from Hearne to LP April 28, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (U: Organizational Correspondence. (Un -Un)), #420.4]
  • Letter from LP to Dr. Donald S. Searle, Medical Director, Burroughs Wellcome and Co. Inc., RE: Thanks Searle for his letter and for the copy of the monograph on the Conference on 6-Mercaptopurine. Looked through the monograph with great interest. Pleased that this purine antagonist has been investigated so thoroughly. [Letter from Searle to LP May 20, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (S: Correspondence, 1953-1956), #379.3]
  • Letter from LP to Dr. E. W. Fajans, Pacific Coast Borax Co., RE: Interested to hear that the Geological Museum of Harvard University plans to determine the crystal structure of the borate mineral from the Company's mine. Had been hoping that Professor Frandel and his collaborators at the Geological Museum would eventually begin to make crystal structure determinations of minerals. In the past, they had used x-rays in the study of minerals, but had not made crystal structure determinations. [Letters from Fajans to LP May 20, 1955, June 10, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (F: Correspondence, 1935-1956), #128.20]
  • Letter from LP to H.S. Ingham RE: Thanks Ingham for the copy of his book The Theory of Space. Interested to see that Ingham is working on the fundamental theories of physics, but LP finds the book too deep for him. Cannot see what new results in physics had been obtained. Notices that in the last issue the Physical Review, there is a paper on the Swiss-cheese theory of the universe. The author does not seem to come to any definite conclusions as a result of his work. [Letter from Ingham to LP May 20, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (I: Correspondence, 1936-1973), #185.16]
  • Letter from LP to Roger Revelle, Director, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, RE: Is impressed by Dr. Gustaf Arrhenius. Although his training is not in chemistry, he has an unusually good grasp on this subject, especially in its broader aspects. Considers Arrhenius a first-rate scientist, and assumes that he will be an excellent teacher. Strongly recommends that he be given permanent appointment on the faculty of Scripps. [Letter from Revelle to LP April 28, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (R: Correspondence, 1955-1959), #341.1]
