Linus Pauling: I didn't see him very much after the war, rather few times and sometimes when we went to the meetings in Princeton of the
Einstein Committee usually we would see, the members of the committee would see Oppenheimer. He would come in for a few minutes,
we went to his house once or twice after the meeting. I didn't have as close a relationship with him as I had had in the late
1920s and early 1930s. He was, of course, a brilliant man with very wide interests, interests in all aspects of the world
and with great ability. I, he made some important contributions to science. I think that he could have made more if he, his
attention had been concentrated on science more thoroughly that it was.
