  • Letter from Dr. E.F.G. Herrington, Dept., of Scientific and Industrial Research, Chemical Research Laboratory, Teddington, Middlesex, England, to LP RE: Evidence for the structure that Herrington described in his letter to Nature will be published elsewhere. The point that LP raises is considered in detail in the forthcoming paper and Herrington will arrange for a reprint to be sent to LP when it becomes available. Mentions one piece of evidence regarding CN absorption. [Letter from LP to Herrington August 3, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (H: Correspondence, 1950-1955), #166.6]
  • Letter from Professor Hans Neurath, Biochemistry Dept., University of Washington, to LP RE: Accepts the invitation to speak at the conference at Washington, D.C., on Molecular Structure and Biological Specificity. Wonders whether the topic of the molecular changes attending the transformation of precursors of proteolytic enzymes to their active forms would be suitable. Indicates particular compounds which he would consider. Wonders what other papers in the enzyme field will be given and what kind of audience is expected. Open to suggestions if the topic he proposed is not satisfactory. [Letter from West to LP August 3, 1955, Letter from LP to Neurath August 16, 1955] [Filed under LP Speeches: 1955s.24]
  • Letter from Professor J.B.S. Haldane, University College, London, to LP RE: While Haldane does not study mental deficiency, his colleague L.S. Penrose is an expert on it. The trouble with mongolism is that there are structural abnormalities in the hand and maybe in the brain. Believes that one would likely find biochemical abnormality in the mother and child during the second or third month of pregnancy. However, mothers that are going to bear mongol children cannot be identified. In a postscript, asks for LP's opinion on the validity of a statement regarding erythrocytes and hemoglobin. [Letter from LP to Haldane July 18, 1955, Letter from Haldane to LP August 15, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (H: Individual Correspondence. (Haaland - Harned)), #151.5]
  • Letter from Professor W. A. Wooster, Dept. of Mineralogy and Petrology, Cambridge University, to LP RE: Thanks LP for considering Prasad. Prasad has completed his work at Cambridge and will return to India. If Prasad should apply for work at Caltech later on, Wooster will be willing to give him a strong recommendation. [Letter from LP to Wooster July 25, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (W: Individual Correspondence. (Williams, J.W. - Wyman)), #438.9]
  • Letter from R.D. Morgan, Department of Mental Hygiene to Beatrice Wulf, Secretary to LP, RE: Thanks Wulf for the transcript. If Wulf has an extra copy of LP's request for funds to the Ford Foundation Morgan would like one for his files. [Letter from Executive Secretary to Morgan July 19, 1955] [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 #89.13]
