  • Letter from LP to Alan W. Richards RE: Thanks Richards for the fine photograph of Dr. Einstein with his signature. Especially pleased to have one of the last three photographs Einstein ever signed. Also thinks it fine that the last one and the pen be presented to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Requests that Richards send 12 copies of the photograph of LP and AHP walking away from Princeton Tavern. They should be on that same pebbly paper. Requests a statement also. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (R: Correspondence, 1955-1959), #341.1]

  • Letter from LP to Leonard Potash, Los Angeles Sobell Committee, RE: Regrets that he will be unable to participate in the Los Angeles Sobell Youth Committee's conference. Demands on his time have become so great recently, that LP has decided not accept any more invitations in the coming months. [Letter from Potash to LP July 7, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (P: Correspondence, 1953-1959), #313.3]
  • Letter from LP to Mr. Hertenstein, Caltech, RE: In the new parking lot south of the Norman W. Church Laboratory, 19 spaces are allotted to the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering; this is not sufficient. Suggests that the 12 spaces which have been allotted to the Humanities Division be divided equally between the Chemistry and Biology Divisions. Suggests that the Humanities faculty park in the lot that is farther east on campus, as the distance to the Humanities building from there is the same as from the Norman Church parking lot. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (H: Correspondence, 1950-1955), #166.6]
  • Letter from LP to Professor Edward P. Clancy, Physics Dept., Caltech, RE: President DuBridge showed LP Clancy's letter. In it, Clancy mentions a Caltech Chemistry and Chemical Engineering graduate admissions committee member remarking that the Division did not look favorably upon prospective graduate students who wished to go into college teaching. LP explains that this statement is completely contrary to the policy of the Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. In fact, over one third of the Division's Ph.D. recipients are now involved in teaching. [Letter from Clancy to LP July 21, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (C: Correspondence, 1921-1957), #74.23]
  • Letter from LP to Professor L.T. Wyly, School of Civil Engineering, Purdue University, RE: Did not write out the address that he delivered at the dedication of the new chemistry building at Purdue. The Purdue public relations office has a copy of the abstract of the talk and perhaps Wyly could obtain a copy from them. If Wyly is interested in a particular aspect of the talk, perhaps LP could send him a reprint on that aspect. In a postscript, notes that he has found his copy of the abstract and can lend it to Wyly if Wyly cannot get a copy at the public relations office. [Letter from Wyly to LP June 20, 1955] [Filed under LP Speeches: 1955s.15]
  • Letter from LP to Wilbert Sandstrom RE: Comments on quantum mechanics. Says the Schroedinger equations are covered in a course in theoretical physics. Suggests a course in mathematical analysis, special functions, such as spherical harmonics, and partial differential equations. Studying group theory would be helpful. [Letter from Sandstrom to LP July 8, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (S: Correspondence, 1953-1956), #379.3]
  • Research Notebook of LP RE: Does calculations regarding effective radii of Si, Ge, Sn, Zn, Ga, Li, and Mg in Al, and Al and Mn in Ni pp. 30-31. [Filed under LP Research Notebooks: 19R]
