  • Letter from Dr. Larkin Kerwin, Physics Dept., Universite Laval, Quebec, to LP RE: Encloses two reprints of an article concerning the experimental verification of the existence of the molecule P8 as suggested by Dr. M. Simonetta and LP in 1952. Congratulates LP on receiving the Nobel Prize. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (K: Correspondence, 1936-1956), #200.20]
  • Letter from Dr. Richard Creese, Pharmacology Dept., School of Medicine, University of California Medical Center, to LP RE: Interested in the deviation from simple exponential kinetics which occurs during the exchange of radioactive tracers in muscle. Has interpreted this deviation in terms of variation in the exchange rates of individual cells. Has found in practice that the experimental plots are similar to curves which have been computed on the assumption on that the logarithms of the rate constants of the individual cells are distributed in a normal manner. Gives the integral which he used in this calculation. Requests the reference where he can find the table of this function that LP and his colleagues were about to publish.

  • Letter from Dr. Roland M. Whittaker, Chairman, Chemistry Dept., Queens College, to Dr. Fred Allen, Chemistry Dept., Purdue University, RE: Becuase Allen could not commit to a time slot as a speaker at the NEACT Summer Conference, Whittaker has asked Klock to speak. Asks Allen to continue to pursue LP to speak the conference. [Filed under LP Correspondence: Allen, Fred, 5.4]
  • Letter from Dr. William R. Bergen, Children's Hospital Society of Los Angeles, to Dr. W. Harold Civin, Director of Laboratories, Queen's Hospital, Hawaii, RE: Second blood sample arrived in excellent condition and hemoglobin was prepared. Several paper electrophoresis runs were made, but definite results will not be established until fetal hemoglobin content can be checked. One component runs as hemoglobin-C does, while the other runs somewhere between normal hemoglobin and sickle hemoglobin. Would like to perform careful alkali denaturation studies before identifying second component. Tentative diagnosis of patient would be thalassemia/hemoglobin-C disease, with fetal hemoglobin replacing normal A. Will write soon with further information.

  • Letter from Dr. Yasuhiko Nozaki, Biophysical Chemistry Dept., Harvard University, to LP RE: Has been working with Dr. J. T. Edsall on the interaction of 4-methylimidazole with cupric and zinc ions and on the modification of insulin with phenylisothiocyanate derivatives. On his way to Japan, would like to stop in California and visit LP's laboratory. [Letter from Wulf to Nozaki February 24, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (N: Correspondence), #287.22]
  • Letter from Raymond Stevens, Vice President, Arthur D.

  • Letter from W.H. Freeman, W.H. Freeman & Co., to LP RE: Stan would like to see the revised edition published in early June, which means that the proof reading must be fit into his schedule. Stan insists that LP read both the page proofs and galley proofs. Gives schedule for proof reading. Informs LP of the new policy regarding the cost of authors' alterations in proofs.

Atwood, Jr., Director, National Academy of Sciences-National Research Council, to LP RE: Asks LP for his opinion on whether or not the National Institute of Sciences in India is the nearest equivalent in India to the National Academy of Sciences. (as part of the program expansion to include international relations with sister academies in other countries).
