  • Letter [2 copies] from Dr. William F. Neuman, School of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Rochester, to Secretary to LP RE: Had invited LP to participate in the Gordon Conference on the Structure, Chemistry, and Physiology of Bones and Teeth on August 1-5, 1955, but later learned that LP is abroad. Inquires whether LP took any action on Neuman's last letter. Is anxious to hear LP speak on the subject of collagen, but must arrange for a substitute if LP will not be available. Encloses tentative program of the conference. [Telegram from Neuman to Secretary January 24, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (N: Correspondence, 1929-1930, 1936-1956), #287.22]
  • Letter from Beatrice Wulf, Secretary to LP, to Stanley Schaefer, W.H. Freeman & Co., RE: Suggests that Schaefer return the second copy of the revision of College Chemistry when he has finished with it. Wulf does foresee any need for it, but perhaps LP will want to read it while he is away. [Letters from Schaefer to Wulf December 27, 1954, February 19, 1955] [Filed under LP Books: (College Chemistry: An Introductory Textbook of General Chemistry, Second Edition), #1955b.2]
  • Letter from Dr. E. Bright Wilson, Jr., to Dr. Martin Karplus, Mathematical Institute, RE: Pleased that Karplus is beginning to think about the revision of Introduction to Quantum Mechanics. Hopes that Wilson will be able to spend August in Cambridge. Describes changes that should go into the revision. Says the biggest challenge will be identifying content to eliminate so that new material can be added without making the book too long. [Filed under LP Books: (Introduction to Quantum Mechanics, with Applications to Chemistry, Second Edition), Unpb.7]
  • Letter from Dr. Karl Bechert, Germany, to LP RE: Says he read in a Frankfurt newspaper about LP's statement against nuclear bomb testing. LP's statements correspond completely to Bechert's opinions. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (B: Correspondence, 1955-1957), #38.1]
  • Letter from Jagdish Sahu to LP RE: Says that he learned that LP will be in India for the first half of February. Requests an interview in relation to his request to do research under LP.
