  • Letter from Dr. R. H. Gillette, Department of Chemistry, University of Michigan to LP RE: worries that he was not clear about the situation in his last letter to LP. Gillette was promised leave last August, when he applied for the Guggenheim Fellowship, but in light of the war, all leaves were cancelled, even sabbaticals. Consequently, the decision not to accept LP's very generous offer was taken entirely out of Gillette's hands. Assures that he is still anxious to come to Pasadena, however, he does not know how to sever his connections with the University and hopes that after the war he will get another opportunity to come to Caltech.
