Letter from Linus Pauling to Warren Weaver. July 29, 1936.
Pauling writes to provide Weaver with an update on recent progress in his laboratory related to work on the structure of proteins. In his update, Pauling opines that "I feel that the proteins are too complex to offer great promise that their x-ray investigation will lead to significant results beyond those already obtained by Astbury, but the protein problem is such an important one that it seems desirable to attack it, in the hope that something worthwhile will be discovered." Transcript.
