Linus Pauling: Many years later, Watson and Crick discovered the double-helix, with the help of
Jerry Donohue who pointed out that they were using the wrong structures for the nitrogen
bases, and that the correct structures would form hydrogen bonds with one another.
That was a valuable contribution. He's the only person whom they thank in their paper
on the double-helix. They could have thanked him even much more strongly, I think,
than they did.
