Linus Pauling: Roscoe Dickinson came here in 1918. He used the spectrometer, made measurements, made determinations of the structure of
two minerals: wulfenite and scheelite and also of sodium chlorate and sodium bromate. I remember the crystals of sodium chlorate
and sodium bromate that he used. They were about 1/2 inch in diameter, had some developed faces and some faces that he had
ground on them to get Bragg reflections off of these faces without being troubled by obstruction problems. He got his Ph.D.
in 1920 for this work. He was the first man to receive the doctoral degree from the California Institute of Technology. Richard
