NewBiography of
Ava Helen Pauling
On May 9, 2013, OSU Libraries and Press hosted a gathering
at the Oregon Historical Society to celebrate the publication
of a long-awaited biography:
Ava Helen Pauling, Partner,
Activist, Visionary
Author Mina Carson, an associate professor of history at
OSU, did much of her research for the book while participat-
ing in the OSU Libraries Special Collections and Archives
Research Center Resident Scholar Program. At the Portland
event, Carson shared images and stories about Ava Helen and
about her own research for the book.
Though Ava Helen may be best known as the spouse of
Linus Pauling, she had a rich career of her own as an activist
for civil rights, peace, feminism, and environmental steward-
ship. She was “the one who inspired Linus Pauling to go
beyond his science and take political stands and career risks
based on moral conviction,” says Carson. This first biogra-
phy of Ava Helen is a significant complement to the writings
about Linus Pauling and a welcome addition to the literature
on feminism and family history.
Read more about Dr. Carson’s research for the book on
the Pauling Blog:
