Linus Pauling Research Notebooks

Linus Pauling was one of the most important scientists of the 20th century, and he remains
the only person ever to receive two unshared Nobel Prizes: the first was awarded to him for
Chemistry (1954) and the other for Peace (1962). He was a man of remarkable talent, who had
a vast array of scientific interests, and who always maintained a deep and abiding passion
for humankind and its survival. To many, he is best remembered for his strong belief in the
importance of vitamin C, despite his numerous other accomplishments. During his lifetime, he
produced hundreds of notebooks documenting his various research endeavors and musings on
various timely scientific topics. The Ava Helen and Linus Pauling Papers project, part of
Oregon State University Libraries Special Collections, has digitized many of these notebooks
and placed them online for the benefit of the public. Visitors may browse the notebooks at
their leisure, or go through a selection of highlights, including his first notes on
superconductivity and his first notes on vitamin C and the common cold.
