  • Copy of Letter from Alan T. Waterman, National Science Foundation to Dr. Lee A. DuBridge RE: A grant of $16,000 has been made by the NSF to the California Institute of Technology to support the research entitled "High Molecular Weight Biological Compounds" (NSF-G1956) for three years. [Letter from DuBridge to Waterman October 4, 1955] [Filed under LP Science: (National Science Foundation: Grants, Exhibits, 1954-1964), Box #14.030, Folder #30.2]
  • Letter from Arthur S. Cain, M.D., Assistant Medical Director, American Heart Association, Inc., to LP RE: Requests that LP interview Dr. Robert Harris Maybury and Dr. Richard S. Schweet. LP's evaluation of their personalities, experience, and background will aid the Research Committee in considering Maybury and Schweet's application for Established Investigators of the Heart Association. If LP is willing, then Cain will notify Maybury and Schweet to arrange a meeting next week, and also send LP a copy of their application. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (A: Correspondence), #12.21]
  • Letter from Dr. C.B. Anfinsen, Jr., Chief, Laboratory of Cellular Physiology and Metabolism, National Heart Institute, to LP RE: Describes the work he and Dr. Redfield have done on ribonuclease. Believes that it would indeed be relevant to the Molecular Structure and Biological Specificity Symposium. Would be honored to present the work at the Symposium, but would not want to crowd the program. [Letters from LP to Anfinsen, Jr. September 21, 1955, September 29, 1955] [Filed under LP Speeches: 1955s.24]

  • Letter from Professor Raymond M. Fuoss, Chemistry Dept., Yale University, to Dr. Irvin C. Mohler, American Institute of Biological Sciences, RE: Fuoss agreed to speak at the Molecular Structure and Biological Specificity Symposium on the understanding that he would not be required to submit a manuscript. However, now Mohler informs him that the proceedings will be recorded, with copies to be sent to speakers for editing, for eventual publication. Believes this editing will require as much work as preparing a manuscript. Points out the differences between spoken and written styles. Asks to be excused from the Symposium because, due to other commitments, he does not have the time to prepare such a paper.
