Letter from Linus Pauling to Peter Pauling. March 27, 1953.
Linus writes to discuss logistical arrangements for his and Ava Helen's forthcoming trip to Europe, and also to provide his reaction to the Watson-Crick model of DNA. Linus writes "The structure seems to me to be a very interesting one, and I have no strong argument against it. I do not think that their arguments against our structure are strong ones, either. It is evident that one structure or the other can be eliminated easily." Following a comparative analysis of both models, Pauling concludes, "I think that the Wilkins photographs should settle the question definitely."
