Letter from Linus Pauling to Warren Weaver. May 27, 1948.
Pauling expresses his interest in his newly developed theory of metals and updates Weaver on his lecture material this term.


May 27, 1948

Dr. Warren Weaver

London, W. l

Dear Warren:

I was glad to receive your letter—although it doesn't take the place of seeing you.

As to my working too hard, I still have a few speaking engagements to be filled, but then there is a good stretch when my time will be free. Part of my trouble, of course, is due to the fact that I am deeply interested in my new theory of metals, and I want to get the consequences of the new idea worked out before I get back to Pasadena and start in again on biological things. My lectures this term are on intermolecular forces and biological specificity, but I have been devoting my research time to metals.

It is fine that The Foundation has made the new grant to us—I am sure that something well worth while will come of it.

Cordially yours,

Linus Pauling:par
