  • Letter from LP to Roger Corneliussen, RE: If Corneliussen wants additional training in chemistry, with the plan of teaching chemistry later on, LP would recommend another university. Notes that Corneliussen's mathematical training has not been extensive and Caltech tends to emphasize the mathematical aspects of chemistry. Also notes the extra expense incurred in coming to the west coast and the intense competition for graduate assistantship positions. Suggests that Corneliussen consider completing medical school, for with an M.D., he could obtain a job teaching chemistry.
