  • Letter from Beatrice Wulf, Secretary to LP, California Institute of Technology, to Dr. Fred Allen, Chemistry Dept., Purdue University RE: Allen's room reservation has been made for his upcoming visit to Cal Tech. LP will be leaving for Berkeley on January 3rd and looks forward to seeing Allen before then. [Filed under LP Correspondence: Allen, Fred,# 5.4]
  • Letter from Dr. W. H. Eberhardt, Georgia Institute of Technology, to LP RE: Received the annual report of Caltech's Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. Was impressed, as always, with the many programs being carried out. Does not have any GIT graduate students to recommend to LP. Would like to know how former GIT students, such as Eugene F. Cox, are doing at Caltech. GIT is interested in adding two people to the staff in radiochemistry or inorganic chemistry. Have been using second edition of LP's College Chemistry; quite pleased with the textbook, but would like to discuss a few details in it with LP at the end of the year. Postscript describes Eberhardt's disappointment that Hans Lutjens will not be pursuing graduate work. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (E: Individual Correspondence. (Eastman - Eide)), #106.3]
  • Letter from Gunnar Bergman to Office of Naval Research RE: Submits a Periodic Status Report for September 1955 through November 1955 for Contract No. N6onr-24432. [Filed under LP Science: (Office of Naval Research: Correspondence, Contract Status Reports and Project Status Reports, 1947-1962), Box #14.031, Folder #31.18]
  • Letter from Henry Allen Moe, John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation to LP RE: Asks for LP's opinion about granting Drs. J.W. Williams, C.N.H. Long, and Herbert Friedmann a Fellowship. [Letter from LP to Moe December 19, 1955] [Filed under LP Science: (John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, 1953-1975), Box #14.015, Folder #15.3]
  • Letter from LP [Signed by Wulf] to Dr. Dean A. Clark, Massachusetts General Hospital RE: LP regrets that he will not be able to come to Boston for the MGH meeting. Asks Clark to express his regret to Clark's colleagues about not being able to come. [Filed under LP Science: Massachusetts General Hospital—Scientific Advisory Committee, 1949-1957: Box #15.008, Folder #8.7]
  • Letter from LP to Archie Doran RE: Thanks Doran for the information about the processes carried on in the Sullivan concentrator. Would indeed like to know more about the recovery and smelting process. Has retained an interest in the metallurgy field since his student days. [Letter from Doran to LP December 10, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (D: Correspondence, 1936-1959), #98.20]
  • Letter from LP to Professor William Moffitt, Chemistry Dept., Harvard University, RE: Invites Moffitt to visit Caltech and deliver a few lectures. Suggests that Moffitt visit sometime between January 15 and February 5, or after February 27. Offers $500, in addition to covering Moffitt's expenses in Pasadena. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (M: Correspondence, 1950-1955), #256.6]
  • Letter from LP to Warren Chester, RE: No one in the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering has had much experience with gallium. LP does not know anything about using gallium metal to plate on non-metallic surfaces. However, as gallium is a liquid at room temperature, it might be possible to treat a surface after the initial deposition of silver, with liquid gallium, which is then wiped off, leaving a thin film of the metal. [Letter from Chester to LP December 9, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (C: Correspondence, 1921-1957), #74.23]
  • Letter from Professor H.G. Thode, Hamilton College, McMaster University, to LP RE: Has offered a position in physical chemistry and metallurgical science to Dr. Jack Halpern of the University of British Columbia. However, as a new head of the chemistry department has been appointed at British Columbia, Halpern's position may be improved, making it more difficult to attract him to Hamilton. Will let LP know the outcome. Dr. R.W. Atree of Chalk River is also interested in the Hamilton position. Dr. Sly is not interested in living outside the U.S. so it would be difficult to attract him. Might consider him later if Halpern declines. [Letters from LP to Thode June 13, 1955, December 28, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (T: Correspondence, 1936-1955), #410.20]

Sharp, RE: Describes procedures for computing on the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Electro-Data Computer. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (P: Correspondence, 1953-1959), #313.3]
  • Procedure for Caltech Computing on the Jet Propulsion Laboratory ElectroData Computer. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (E: Organizational Correspondence. (Ea - Ex)), #111.3]
  • Proposed Itinerary: University of Indiana, Indianapolis [Filed under LP Travel: Box #1.002, Folder 2.1]
  • Telegram from LP to Dr. Dean A. Clark, Massachusetts General Hospital RE: LP regrets that circumstances prevent his coming to the meeting. [Filed under LP Science: Massachusetts General Hospital—Scientific Advisory Committee, 1949-1957: Box #15.008, Folder #8.7]
