LINUS PAULING. Pamphlet signed: "Linus Pauling" on front cover above photograph of Pauling, his wife and Dr. Ewan Cameron, 4p, 8½x11. Menlo Park, California, circa 1977. Newsletter of The Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine, Vol. 1, No. 2. Cover story: "Vitamin C and Cancer". Begins: "In my article 'How Vitamin C Improves Health' that was published in the first issue of this Newsletter I mentioned that a large intake of vitamin C has value in helping to control the common cold, influenza, hepatitis, schizophrenia, and other diseases. Interest in the prophylactic and therapeutic use of vitamin C against cancer is now so great as to justify a fuller discussion of this question." Pauling's article continues on page 2. The newsletter also includes a number of other articles relating to the institute. Dr. Linus Pauling (1901-1994) founded the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine in 1973 to study the prevention and treatment of diseases using vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin C. Dr. Cameron and Pauling would co-author a book, Cancer and Vitamin C: A Discussion of the Nature, Causes, Prevention, and Treatment of Cancer with Special Reference to the Value of Vitamin C, in 1979, two years after this newsletter was published. Pauling had won the 1954 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his research into the nature of chemical bonding and its application to the structure of complex substances. In 1962, he received the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaign against nuclear testing (even though he had done military research during WWII, Pauling became an increasingly vocal critic of the arms race). The chemist/pacifist is the only individual winner of two different Nobel Prizes. Lightly creased. Nailhead-size ink stain at lower margin of back cover. Fine condition.
