Letter from Linus Pauling to Warren Weaver. October 5, 1944.
Pauling writes to express partial agreement with Weaver's skepticism toward the large-scale post-war program of protein research that Pauling had previously outlined. Though he does not feel that it will be too difficult to recruit a large and well-trained corps of scientific assistants, Pauling does grant that the proposal might benefit from some measure of scaling back. That said, Pauling feels very strongly that the protein-structure determination tools that have been developed in recent years at Caltech are very powerful and, if marshaled intensively, could efficiently produce a large and important body of work. Transcript.
