Linus Pauling was an esteemed molecular chemist, peace advocate, and two-time Nobel laureate. Pauling's home state of Oregon will be celebrating his 100th birthday this month. Oregon State University (OSU) has posted a special Pauling Centenary site. OSU Press' release of the book Linus Pauling: Scientist and Peacemaker, based on previously unpublished writings housed at the university, coincides with the centenary. The Pauling centenary site holds a timeline of significant events, scientific contributions and peace-promotion activities in Pauling's life, a link to OSU's Ava Helen and Linus Pauling Papers Collection, a photo gallery, and RealAudio/RealVideo clips of Pauling's lectures and interviews. After visiting this interesting site, you might even want to buy the Linus Pauling Centenary totebag!
