Pauling Papers On-line

JAMA. 2003;289(11):1368. doi:10.1001/jama.289.11.1368-a

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has made available a collection of letters, notes, speeches, photographs, and other materials documenting the life of Linus Pauling, PhD, who died in 1994 at the age of 93.

Pauling was the only person to win two unshared Nobel prizes: the chemistry prize in 1954 for his breakthrough work on proteins, and the peace prize in 1962 for his stance against nuclear proliferation. He spent the last two decades of his life focused on "orthomolecular medicine" and the promotion of large amounts of vitamin C as vital to health.
