Page 1Letter from Linus Pauling to Robert Corey. February 18, 1948.
Pauling writes to disclose his unease with "the English competition," whose research programs threaten to out-perform the
work being done at Caltech. Pauling specifically notes work being done in crystal structure determinations of peptides and
proteins. Pauling suggests that Carl Niemann supervise research on the degradation of insulin, which should, in turn, be
the subject of crystal structure determinations, to be conducted by Corey. Transcript.
