  • Letter from Dr. A.G. Ogston, Balliol College, Oxford, England, to LP RE: While tidying up to prepare for a vacation to Australia, Ogston discovered that he had not thanked LP for the reprint he sent or for the kind letter of congratulations. Does so now and apologizes for his tardiness. Hopes that LP's Nobel trip was enjoyable. Ogston's wife is busy learning to be a teacher.

  • Letter from Dr. I.W. Kinney, President, United States Yttrium, Inc., to LP RE: Recalls a funny story that LP told in a speech at the University of Wyoming a few years ago. Kinney's company is interested in rare earth separation. Would like to make use of the fact that certain molecules fit into certain "holes" in larger molecules when the molecules are properly conditioned. This was a concept which LP discussed in his speech at U of W. Would appreciate LP's thoughts on the feasibility of this separation method.

  • Letter from Dr. W. Foerst, Heidelberg, Germany, to LP RE: Wonders if the change to a particular figure in the German General Chemistry is satisfactory. Will send the proofs later on. Wonders how the word "orbital" should be translated in German. Wonders which new elements should be introduced. Written in German.

  • Letter from LP to Professor E. T. McBee, Head, Chemistry Dept., Purdue University, RE: Appreciated invitation to the dedication ceremonies of Purdue's new building. Regarding the search for a new physical chemist for Purdue, AHP has suggested Joe Mayer of the University of Chicago. While Mayer has a good professorship there, Chicago is cutting back on its science budget, so he may be willing to leave. To persuade him to come to Purdue, it might be necessary to offer his wife, Maria Mayer, a job in the physics department. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (M: Individual Correspondence. (Mark, Herman - Mayer)), #244.8]
