  • Letter from Clark Foreman, Emergency Civil Liberties Committee, to LP RE: Invites LP to speak at their Bill of Rights Dinner on December 15. Planning to hold the dinner in the Carnival Room of the Capitol Hotel. Requests a speech on the effect of freedom on the development of science. Chairman Strauss of the AEC seems to believe that the U.S. is likely to be surpassed by its rivals abroad in the development of science, yet he draws no connection from this to his treatment of Dr. Oppenheimer. Perhaps LP might do so. [Letter from LP to Foreman September 21, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (F: Correspondence, 1935-1956), #128.20]

  • Letter from LP to Dr. George R. Seidel, Public Relations Dept., E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Co., RE: Unable to accept Seidel's invitation to speak at the Gordon Research Textile Conference next summer.

LP does not think it is necessary that he has the American Journal of Mental Deficiency or the Journal of Mental Science available to him in Pasadena and trusts that Tarjan will inform him if something especially interesting appears in one of those journals. [Filed under LP Science: Orthomolecular Medicine and Mental Health: Materials re: Ford Foundation grants for the study of mental disorders, 1955-1966: Box #11.089, Folder #89.2]

Jervis, Department of Research, New York State Department of Mental Hygiene, RE: States he has become interested in mental deficiency and would like reprints of some of his papers.

  • Letter from LP to Professor H.C. Longuet-Higgins, Chemical Laboratory, University of Cambridge, RE: Pleased to have received the reprint of Longuet-Higgins' paper on hexaborides, especially the corrections to the paper. LP cannot find his old calculations about the hexaboride crystals. Hoard has written to LP that he has made a refinement of the structure determination of B4C and has shown without doubt that the structure is essentially correct. Has obtained values for the interatomic distances and reduced probably errors. Believes that the essentially empirical interpretation of the interatomic distances is trustworthy. Cites a particular sentence in the paper that he does not understand. Skeptical about calculations showing that there is a strong overlap between the valency orbitals of non-adjacent boron atoms. [Letter from Longuet-Higgins to LP August 8, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (Longuet-Higgins - LuValle), #218.1]
  • Letter from LP to Professor LS Penrose, The Galton Laboratory, University College, RE: Says he is interested in mental deficiency and asks if he would send a reprint of his paper on mongolism as well as other reprints of papers in this field.
