- Letter from Director Gunnar Jahn to LP . RE: Jahn thanks LP for his letters, which he has just received, and says that he agrees with LP's stance on the Americans starting atmospheric tests of nuclear weapons.

Though he can't write to the President, he urges LP and AHP not to stop fighting. [Filed under LP Safe Contents, Drawer 2, Folder 2.024]

25 April 1962
Mama and I were up at the ranch last week and I put in the time writing the paper on the one-electron-bond theory of antiferromagnetism and ferrimagnetism, essentially as you had written it. Today I have been looking up same references and I came across a paper that has to be mentioned. It is by J. B. Goodenough, Phys. Rev. 100, 564 (1955).
He uses the argument about the Hund's-first-rule stabilization of structures with a valence electron parallel to the magnetic moment of the iron atom or manganese atom, and he says that this would cause the covalent bond to have a greater contribution in which the shared electron has positive spin than for a shared electron with negative spin. He calls such an interaction "semi covalent exchange."
I have not had time to read his whole paper, because it is getting late in the day and tomorrow Mama and I are flying to Washington (we are going to have dinner with President and Mrs. Kennedy in the White House). Would you read Goodenough's paper carefully, and see whether or not he uses our other argument, about 90-degree angles between one-electron bonds with parallel spin - that is, the angle on the nonmetal atom.
If he does not use this argument, then I think that we can go ahead with the publication of our paper, but with acknowledgment of Goodenough's contribution.
Would you write to me as soon as you can, telling just what sort of argument Goodenough uses, as compared with ours.
Also, I think that he discusses essentially only the perovskite structures. You might check up in the abstracts to see whether he has published anything later, about other structures.
Much love from,
