Writing to a New Jersey minister, he comments on topics from vitamins to world peace.
Typed Letter signed: "Linus Pauling", 8x11. Palo Alto, California, 1983 August 17. On letterhead of the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine to Reverend William Ward, St Mary's Orthodox Catholic Church, Bayonne, New Jersey. In full: "I am pleased to answer the questions that you ask in your letter. Under separate cover I am sending you a copy of the new edition of my book, 'No More War!' I think it explains why I feel strongly that all churches should be in favor of world peace. I think that war is the greatest evil. First, I must say that the most convincing evidence that I know is that a high intake of Vitamin C is good for pregnant women and good for their babies. The statement that it might be harmful to the child is not justified. You ask why the medical profession has not accepted the value of vitamin supplements. I think that there is a bias against vitamins, but that many doctors now recognize the value of vitamins and that there will soon be a change in the position of established medicine. Sincerely". Linus Pauling (1901-1994) earned the Nobel Prize in Chemistry (1954) 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 World War II, Pauling became an increasingly vocal critic of the arms race.) In 1962, he demonstrated outside the White House, then dined that evening with President and Mrs. Kennedy. Multiple mailing folds. Lightly creased. Bottom edge lightly toned. Corners lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
