- Letter from Dr. J. B. Neilands, Biochemistry Dept., University of California, to LP RE: Have attempted to obtain large crystals of ferrichrome, but have only found the tiny needles. Have had some success in identifying fragments of ferrichrome by chemical hydrolytic means. In the meantime, have isolated another substance called ferrichrome A. Encloses article reprint on ferrichrome A. Will send larger amount of the small ferrichrome crystals in the hope that it can recrystallized at Caltech to produce larger crystals for analysis.

2 November 1955
I have received a letter from Jack de Wel of Balliol College thanking me for the 10.
Building of the best house will begin early 1956 and it is hoped to be completed by Michelmas
John Kendrew has suggested that I ask you if I could get a post doctoral research
fellowship. What do you think? Carrol Williams is here. Perhaps he would have an opinion. I
suppose it depends on what I want to do. I must apply soon. Joe Krant has a grant from some
secret group in Florida who seems to have a good deal of money.
A Canadian here named W.C. Nixon is coming to Redlands for three months in January.
He has made an x-ray shadowgraph gadget, with a focussed electron beam to get a 3μ diameter
or 2μ x-ray source. It is then possible to take shadow pictures of metal crystals say and
biological things, ants legs. I have sent him to you; You should talk to him a bit to look at his
stereographic photographs of the insides of bugs and metal crystals. They are quite beautiful.
Baez at Redlands has one (also Kirkpatrick and Wykoff), and it would have applications for
diffraction work on small specimens, say individual bands of muscle fibrus. It would be fairly
easy to make a camera, one hole collinator with a 1μ hole.
My results on putting HgI4 = on myoglobin, P2, 2, 2, 4 mols, are so far not happy. I
cannot interpret the difference patterson. Three dimensional work has not yet begun, but it
should in a few months.
I am fairly worried about what to do what next year.
If you would care to send the coordinates or projection of your collagen structure, I
should like to make some marks and Elliot will run the Transform. His gadget uses a mirror,
with about a 32 foot focal length. He made it himself.
- Letter from S. Ghosh, General Secretary, National Academy of Sciences, India to LP RE: Informs LP that LP has been elected as an Honorary Fellow which will be celebrated at Lucknow University in India December 26-29. Asks for LP to send a photograph, life sketch, and an article of general interest to be included in the Souvenir Volume.
