Linus Pauling: Then I was approached with the problem, how can someone who wants to communicate
with the government send a message, let's say in the form of an ordinary letter, a
sheet of paper, that no one would be able to decipher?
Thomas Hager: An unbreakable code.
Linus Pauling: Yes. So, I had an idea, and we worked for two or three years on this, and then one
of the people with me was disappeared from view. He was taken by the government.
So, my secret writing...and I don't know what happened to that. I still don't say
what the method of the secret communication is.
Thomas Hager: Have you ever had the chance to use it since then? Was there anything that you wanted
to transmit in code?
Linus Pauling: No. You have to set up the system. I have several books, research books, containing
messages that were written and then transcribed, but I never heard whether this was
ever used or not. Although, I did turn over the materials to the government.
