Letter from Linus Pauling to Irvin Stewart. April 5, 1939.
Pauling writes to submit his request for a grant from the Committee on Scientific Aids to Learning for the construction of a Fourier calculator. He explains that current methods for calculating Fourier series are both tedious and slow, and that a calculator would allow for research to continue at a rapid place. The Caltech laboratories would use the device, designed by a professional instrument maker, in connection with the determination of crystal structures via x-ray methods.
