  • Letter from LP [Signed by Beatrice Wulf] to Dr. Walter Lehmann, RE: It would have been nice to have met on their travels around the world. Hopes that Lehmann enjoyed his visit with C.V. Ramen. LP had a fine time with him, except that he did not have a chance to say anything, as Ramen was talking so fast and it was impossible to interrupt. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (L: Correspondence, 1955-1960), #231.1]
  • Letter from LP [dictated by LP and signed in his absence by Wulf] to Arthur W. Galston, Yale University RE: Glad to hear from Galston and talks about their leaving Pasadena without saying goodbye. Tells Galston his plans for working on biochemical aspects of mental deficiency. [Letter from Galston to LP November 21, 1955] [Filed under LP Science: (John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, 1953-1975), Box #14.015, Folder #15.3]
  • Letter from LP [dictated by LP and signed in his absence by Wulf] to Dr. George Tarjan, Pacific State Hospital RE: Informs Tarjan that Dr. Murayama would like to make a preliminary investigation of hemoglobin from a patient with phenylketonuria and asks Tarjan to send two samples of blood from phenylketonuric patients as well as a letter identifying the specimens. LP tells Tarjan that he has had no more information from the Ford Foundation and that he had to let the biochemist he hired go because she was not satisfactory. [Letter from Tarjan to LP December 2, 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 #89.2]
  • Letter from LP to Cornel Lengyel, RE: Will inquire about the film with Erven Jourdan. Pleased to see the jacket of Lengyel's upcoming book The American Testament, as well as some of the galleys. Points out a few errors in the galleys. Arthur Galston is now a Professor of Biology at Yale. [Letter from Lengyel to LP November 11, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (L: Correspondence, 1955-1960), #231.1]
  • Letter from LP to Dr. Allen Lein, Medical School, Northwestern University, RE: Sent their manuscript "The Combining Power of Myoglobin for Alkyl Isocyanides, and the Structure of the Myoglobin Molecule" to be published. Made a couple of the changes Lein suggested. Wonders how many reprints Lein would like. Encloses another copy of the manuscript; Lein should let LP know if he wants any other changes made. Thinks Lein is probably right in suspecting that diabetes is a molecular disease. If there were a way to titrate the serum of patients to determine their insulin activity, it might be possible to obtain evidence. [Letters from Lein to LP October 27, 1955, December 6, 1955] [Filed under LP Manuscripts of Articles: 1955a.8]
  • Letter from LP to Dr. J. Jennen, Gevaert Photo-Producten, Belgium, RE: Thanks Jennen for the reprint, as well as for the copy of the article regarding LP's receipt of the Nobel Prize.

Sorry that Julian could not attend the Chemistry Workshop at Fisk in June. [Letter from Julian to LP April 27, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (J: Correspondence), #192.21]
  • Letter from LP to Erven Jourdan, Erven Jourdan Studios, RE: About a year ago, LP remembers that there was discussion of a film biography involving him. The project was dropped when LP began his trip around the world. Wonders if the project has been abandoned permanently, and if not, wonders if they would like his help. [Letter from Lengyel to LP November 11, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (J: Correspondence), #192.21]
  • Letter from LP to Professor J.B. Ramsey, Chemistry Dept., University of California, Los Angeles, RE: Encloses his manuscript regarding the sign and meaning of electrode potentials for LP's comment. Submitted the manuscript to the Journal of Physical Chemistry last August, but Editor has not acted upon it as yet. [Letter from LP to Ramsey December 7, 1955] [Filed under LP Correspondence: (R: Correspondence, 1955-1959), #341.1]
  • Letter from LP to W.H. Freeman, W.H. Freeman and Company, Publishers, RE: Has ordered a copy of the book by Cragg and Graham. Looks forward to reading it and seeing whether he can pick up some good ideas, as Freeman suggested. As Bates is retiring this year, there will be an opening for a physical chemistry professor. Considering Gutowsky for this position. Requests that Freeman make a statement on Gutowsky's reputation as a teacher. Wonders if Freeman could suggest any other candidates, such as Kasha. Looking forward to seeing Freeman this week. Suggests that he and AHP drop in on Freeman on Friday morning. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (W.H. Freeman and Company, 1941-1959), #439.13]

Efforts are again being made at Lilly Research Laboratories to produce the large crystals that were mentioned by Dr. Corey. Will inform LP if they are successful. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (E: Organizational Correspondence. (Ea - Ex)), #111.4]
  • Letter from Professor George Wald, Biological Laboratories, Harvard University, to LP RE: Mailed the five crystalline isomers of retinene to LP. Gives directions for storage of material. Let Wald know if Eichhorn requires any more of these crystals or others. Under separate cover, sends reprints concerning these structures.
