October 15, 1965
The Honorable Edmund G. Brown
Office of the Governor
Sacramento, California 95814
Dear Governor Brown:
On 27 January 1965 I received a letter from your Executive Secretary, Winslow Christian, saying that you had asked him to tell me that you were making an inquiry pursuant to my letter of January 13 about the matter that I had discussed with you when you were visiting the Center.
I am now writing to ask about the outcome of your inquiry.
You may remember that when I came from Santa Barbara, nearly two years ago, I expected to be given an appointment, without salary, in the University of California in Santa Barbara; I am Research Professor of the Physical and Biological Sciences in the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions, and receive my salary from the Fund for the Republic. The arrangement about the appointment was made with me by Professor Fred Wall, who is now Vice-Chancellor in the University of California in Santa Barbara. The appointment was not made, and as a result I have suffered under the handicap of not being able to benefit from association with faculty members and students of the University of California in Santa Barbara, and of not being able to make use of the facilities except in a minor way. I am not willing to make use of these facilities surreptitiously, and I have visited the University only at the invitation of the Associated Students.
Since coming to Santa Barbara I have carried on my scientific work, in the field of theoretical physics, and have developed a new theory of the structure of atomic nuclei. Four papers about this theory have been published during the last six weeks, and I am now writing a book and preparing a series of lectures on this subject, to be given at Pomona College. I have been handicapped in this scientific work by not having association with the University of California in Santa Barbara that I had been offered, and expected to have.
It is hard to estimate how serious this handicap has been - I have, it is true, succeeding in developing the new theory without the benefit of association with the University.

- Letter from LP to Mr. Henry R. Luce Time and Life Building Rockefeller Center RE: Encloses Mr. Jessups letter to him. He says that he has replied because another false statement has been made in this letter. LP is astonished that the Chief Editorial Writer for Life Magazine should have so little respect for the truth as that shown by Mr. Jessup. [Filed under LP Peace: Box #2.009, folder #9.1]
- Letter from LP to Mr. John K. Jessup Editorial Offices Time and Life Building Rockefeller Center RE: Corrects Jessups statement in his letter of October 4, where he says that LP said "Robert Hutchins' international understanding, in comparison with that of scientists, is 'odd and incomplete'". LP says that what was actually said was "You know, even my old friend, Dr. Hutchins -- I think because of the limited nature of his association with scientists -- has what seems to me an odd and incomplete understanding of them".
