  • Check from AHP to Mrs. Elizabeth Gillette for $10.00. [Filed under LP Biographical: (Business and Financial: Bank Statements and Canceled Checks, December 1954-February 1956), Box #4.023, Folder #23.1]
  • Letter from Beatrice Wulf, Secretary to LP, to Dr. M.I. Pratt, Biophysics Research Unit, King's College, England, RE: Regrets to say that the supply of reprints of LP's article "Antibodies and Specific Biological Forces" has been exhausted. Thought that a similar article might be available, but they have run out of reprints of that one as well. [Letter from Pratt to LP September 20, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (P: Correspondence, 1953-1959), #313.3]
  • Letter from Dr. Jack Dunitz, National Institute of Mental Health, to LP RE: Encloses the first draft of a paper on the crystal structure of ferrocene. Since most of the work was performed at Caltech, believes that the paper should come as a contribution from Gates and Crellin, although parts were done at Oxford and NIH. Unhappy with the paper; believes that the poor quality results are due to the untrustworthiness of the experimental data. Discusses some of the results. [Letter from LP to Dunitz October 26, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (D: Individual Correspondence. (Dil - Dyson)), #96.21]
  • Letter from LP to Alden H. Emery, American Chemical Society, RE: Writes in response to Joel Hildebrand's letter to say that Professor Norman Davidson is the faculty advisor for the American Chemical Society student affiliate at the California Institute of Technology. [Letter from Hildebrand to LP, October 6, 1955, Letter from Stanerson to LP, October 25, 1955] [Filed under LP Science: (American Chemical Society: Correspondence, 1950-1964), Box #14.006, Folder #6.4]
  • Letter from LP to Professor Jacob Kleinberg, Chemistry Dept., University of Kansas, RE: The officers of Phi Lambda Upsilon informed Kleinberg that they have invited LP to give the E.C. Franklin Memorial Lecture for this year. Hopes that LP will find time to accept the invitation. [Letter from LP to Kleinberg November 10, 1955] [Filed under LP Speeches: 1956s.22]
  • Letter from Professor David P. Shoemaker, MIT to LP RE: Has a student interested in x-ray diffraction to study heteropoly anions of molybdenum and tungsten. Recalls that at Caltech, Dr. J. L. T. Waugh made a number of such compounds and Shoemaker took powder photographs of them. However, the student has been unable to locate any publication describing the compounds Waugh made. Wonders if anyone at Caltech plans to work on these compounds. In a postscript, says that they have just made of a sample of the nickel analog of the 9-Molybdenumaganate. Wonders where Waugh is now.

  • Letter from Professor David P. Shoemaker, MIT, to LP RE: Frank C. Wilson, a graduate student who expects to finish by spring or summer of 1956, has been working on the crystal structures of metal cyclopentadienyl carbonyls with Shoemaker. Wonders if Wilson might spend a year in post-doctoral study with LP, Hughes, Corey, or Bergman under a Noyes fellowship. [Letter from LP to Shoemaker October 25, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (S: Individual Correspondence. (Shaw - Shriver)), #363.3]
  • Letter from Professor Joseph B. Platt, Physics Dept., University of Rochester, to LP RE: Platt and his students have been exploring the possibility of building a large aperture bent mica x-ray spectrograph for the determination of wavelengths of mesonic x-rays. Would not require high resolution, but would require high luminosity. They have read LP's article on the structure of micas and related minerals which appeared in the 1930 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Wonders if the observed and calculated intensities of reflection which LP gives for fuchsite are for the Cu K-alpha wavelength. Wonders what LP used for a Debye temperature of fuchsite. Would appreciate any information regarding what orders of reflection at which wavelengths give high reflection coefficients for mica. Wonders if LP knows of any work that has been done on the mosaic crystal coefficient of reflection for the micas. [Letter from LP to Platt November 10, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (P: Correspondence, 1953-1959), #313.3]
  • Letter from Professor Kurt Mislow, Chemistry Dept., New York University, to LP RE: Has given LP's name as a reference in an application for a Guggenheim fellowship. If awarded the fellowship, plans to combine it with a sabbatical during the academic year 1957-58. Has sent mimeographed copies of his statement of plans for research to the Foundation. One of these will be forwarded to LP and its contents should be regarded as confidential. Have synthesized a certain compound, which is the first optically inactive, configurationally pure compound whose individual molecules are asymmetric. [Letter from LP to Mislow October 25, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (M: Individual Correspondence. (Mills - Morgan)), #248.4]
  • Letter from Professor Ralph A. Beebe, Chemistry Dept., Amherst College, to LP RE: Delighted that LP will able to visit Amherst in April. Will write to LP again in February or March about the specific dates. Bruce Benson will write to LP regarding the financial arrangements. [Letter from LP to Beebe October 5, 1955, Letter from Beebe to LP March 7, 1956] [Filed under LP Speeches: 1956s.19]
  • Memorandum from A.H. Walter to R.B. Gilmore, cc: LP RE: Final notification of Amendment No. 12 for Contract No. N6onr-24432. [Filed under LP Science: (Office of Naval Research: Correspondence, Contract Status Reports and Project Status Reports, 1947-1962), Box #14.031, Folder #31.18]
