"I have known Dr. Sturdivant for fifteen years. During the period 1927-1930 he carried
on graduate work in chemistry at the California Institute of Technology under my direction,
and since 1930 he has worked continuously as Research Fellow, Senior Fellow in Research,
and Assistant Professor of Chemistry. Throughout this time I have been in very close
contact with ihm. I have complete confidence in his honesty, integrity, loyalty to
the United States of America. I rate him as the most reliable and trustworthy man
that I know."
Linus Pauling. Letter to George Kistiakowsky. May 27, 1942.
"I remember with pleasure the years that we were together as graduate students and
staff members in the California Institute of Technology, and also that we are both
members of Delta Upsilon. I have sometimes mentioned to people that your DU spectrophotometer
was given that name because of Delta Upsilon, but that was just a surmise on my part."
Linus Pauling. Letter to Arnold O. Beckman. January 8, 1986.
