  • Letter from Dr. Carl Niemann, Chemistry Dept., Caltech, to Dr. Theodore Shedlovsky, Committee on Grants and Fellowships, Consumers Union of the U.S., RE: Apologizes for the delay in naming the nominee for the 1955-56 Consumers Union Fellowship. Nominates William De More, who is conducting his Ph.D. thesis research under Dr. Norman Davidson. His research is the study of the reactions and mobilities of molecules colliding with a cold surface from the gas phase. De More has completed most of the formal requirements for a Ph.D. so he will be mainly focused on research during the coming year. Will provide more information about De More if necessary.

  • Letter from Laurence S. Rockefeller, Alfred P. Sloan, Jr., and Frank A. Howard to LP RE: The Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer Research has reached its tenth anniversary. During the past decade, there has been development in laboratories and hospitals throughout the world of a vigorous, scientific program to achieve cancer control. They invite LP to attend the anniversary dinner on October 18 in New York. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (M: Organizational Correspondence, (Ma- Mo)), #254.7]
  • Letter from Professor Ralph Emerson, Botany Dept., University of California, Berkeley, to LP RE: Pleased to have had a glimpse of LP and AHP a few weeks ago at Bill Freeman's office. Invites LP to speak at one of the monthly Biology Seminars at Berkeley perhaps on November 11. Emerson enjoyed LP's talk on the genesis of ideas at the AAAS Meeting. Wonders if LP might speak on that subject. An honorarium of $50 will be provided. [Letter from LP to Emerson September 21, 1955] [Filed under LP Speeches: 1956s.3]
  • Letter from Professor S. Mizushima, Chemistry Dept., University of Notre Dame, to Beatrice Wulf, Secretary to LP, RE: Was able to confirm his reservation on the flight arriving in Los Angeles on Sept. 25. Requests that Wulf reserve a room for him from Sunday night through Tuesday morning. Requests that Wulf confirm his reservation on the flight leaving Los Angeles on Tuesday morning.

  • Letter from W.H. Freeman, W.H. Freeman and Company, Publishers, to LP RE: Thanks LP for the answers to the revision of College Chemistry. Has sent LP's letter regarding the printing quality and the weight of the paper to Stanley Schaefer. As to the printing being inferior, Freeman is afraid this is due to the rushed production schedule. Hopefully, Schaefer will have LP's letter in time to make the printers do a better job on the third imprint. As to the weight of the paper, cannot go back to the fifty-five pound paper because it is no longer made. Does not suggest using a heavier paper, as so many students have complained about the weight of introductory science books. If there are any complaints on the paper, will consider a heavier weight.
