Letter from Linus Pauling to N.F. Mott November 22, 1955

Pauling writes that his son Peter suggested that Mott might be interested in Pauling’s opinion of the work being done by the Medical Research Council Unit on the structure of biological materials. Pauling notes that he and Robert B. Corey think highly of the work of Perutz, Kendrew, Crick, and Watson on the structure of proteins, finding it important and applicable to many scientific problems. He provides a small list of scientists who are working on the same subject. Pauling feels that Bragg, Kendrew, and Perutz have made the greatest contributions though, and hopes that they will be allowed to continue in this work. In a postscript, Pauling notes that he plans to send this letter to Sir Alexander Todd.  View Transcript
