  • Letter from LP to W.H. Freeman, W.H. Freeman and Company, Publishers, RE: Does not know much about Parlin, Zwolinsky, or Tanford. Has looked up their papers and formed general opinions about them. Believes that they could prepare a good manuscript, but cannot be sure. Does see a need for a good book for a second year of physical chemistry to be given to graduate students. Not sure about what topics should be covered in this book. Seems that the authors would have to decide which topics should be covered based upon their own interests. Recommends that Freeman and LP look over the manuscript without committing themselves.

  • Memo from LP to Dean Lacey RE: States that he feels the nature of the work will be such that many graduate students can carry on studies in this field but states he does not like to use special funds for support of graduate students because of the danger they will no longer have freedom of choice about his research problem. [Memo from Lacey to Anderson July 25, 1955] [Filed under LP Science: Box #11.088, Folder #88.1]
