Page 1Letter from Max Perutz to Linus Pauling. August 17, 1951.
Perutz writes to clarify details about a recent publication on the structure of feather
rachis keratin. Perutz also gratefully acknowledges Pauling's contributions to the
body of knowledge that resulted in Perutz's prediction of a 1.5Å reflection in alpha-keratin
structures. Perutz writes, "The fulfilment of this prediction and, finally, the discovery
of this reflexion in haemoglobin has been the most thrilling discovery of my life." Transcript.
