  • Letter from LP to Dr. Gary Felsenfeld, Mathematical Institute, Oxford, England, RE: Wonders if Felsenfeld is going to Bethesda. Det Bronk told LP that the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research plans to make appointments for five-year senior research fellowships. Proposes to appoint a few men who have a couple years of postdoctoral experience and would be willing to work at the New York Institute. If Felsenfeld is interested, he should contact Bronk. Wonders if Felsenfeld has done anything about publishing his work done at Caltech or his work with Coulson. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (F: Individual Correspondence.

  • Letter from LP to Dr. T.H. Benzinger, Naval Medical Research Institute, National Naval Medical Center, RE: Valuable information about biological and physical chemical processes can be obtained from measurements of heats of reaction. Have not worked specifically in this field, so cannot give critical advice on experimental techniques. Recommends Benzinger contact Professor Julian Sturtevant. Does not understand the phenomenon Benzinger describes in the last paragraph of his letter. Welcomes Benzinger to visit Caltech. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (B: Correspondence, 1955-1957), #38.1]
  • Letter from LP to Dr. W.G. Schneider, Division of Pure Chemistry, National Research Council, RE: Does not think it necessary to publish a correction in the Journal of Chemical Physics, stating that the seeds of many of Schneider's ideas are contained in LP's book. Sorry to hear that Schneider was unable to publish his ideas on intramolecular hydrogen bonds on the grounds that they were too controversial. If Schneider has discovered something new in the field, and has evidence, it should be published. [Letter from Schneider to LP May 25, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (S: Correspondence, 1953-1956), #379.3]

  • Letter from LP to Professor R. P. Mariella, Chairman, Chemistry Dept., Loyola University, RE: Suggests Dr. William F. Sheehan, Jr. be considered for the department's open position. Sheehan, a graduate of Loyola, carried out his graduate work at Caltech, in part under LP's direction. Sheehan is an able chemist, now working for the Shell Development Company. Has heard that Sheehan would like a teaching position. [Letters from Mariella to LP May 10, 1955, June 6, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (M: Correspondence, 1950-1955), #256.6]
  • Letter from LP to W.H. Freeman, W.H. Freeman and Company, Publishers, RE: Huennekens and Mahler have contributed significantly to the field of biological oxidations. Cannot tell whether the book will be a well-written one until he has seen the manuscript. The first three chapters would give the answer. Offers to look over the manuscript after Freeman receives it. Professor Carl Niemann mentioned that he thought the field deserved a small monograph, hardly a full-sized book.
