  • Letter from Dael Wolfle, Administrative Secretary, Science, to LP RE: Thanks LP for the review of Gero and Reese's paper "A Chemical Model of Drug Action." The authors have tried to accommodate most of LP's suggestions. However, the authors could not agree to give equilibrium constants calculated on the assumption that one molecule of each of the two interacting substances combine together. The authors claim there is nothing in the experimental data to support this statement. Wolfle wonders if LP accepts this explanation and if the revised paper is worthy of publication.

  • Letter from Dr. Cornelius H. Siemens, Humboldt State College, to LP RE: Thrilled over LP's acceptance of the invitation to speak at American Heritage Week. LP is scheduled to speak before the General Assembly on February 17 at 11 AM for forty minutes. If LP would like to arrive on the evening of February 16, a reservation will be made for him at the Eureka Inn. Requests a glossy print of LP. Will obtain biographical info from the Directories through 1954, so LP should send any newsworthy info concerning 1955.

  • Letter from Professor Victor Nigon, Maitre de Conferences, Zoology Laboratory, University of Lyon, France, to Dr. Ellsworth C. Dougherty, Physiology Dept., School of Medicine, University of California, Berkeley, RE: Written in French. Would like to know about LP's philosophical attitudes because LP is being considered to fill the place left vacant by Einstein's death on the Committee of Honor of the Union Rationaliste. [Letter from Dougherty to LP November 3, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (N: Correspondence), #287.22]
  • Letter from W.D. McElroy, Director, Johns Hopkins University to LP RE: Invites LP to act as moderator of Session IV at the Symposium on the Chemical Basis of Heredity, which is to be held June 19-22, 1956. LP's primary responsibility would be to keep the less informed group on the right track. LP is welcome to prepare a manuscript for publication, but would not be required to do so. The Institute would defray LP's expenses. Includes a tentative program, as well as a program from last year's symposium. Welcomes LP's suggestions concerning additional participants in the symposium.
