At the top-left portion of this page, you’ll notice a new mini-feature that we’re pleased to introduce. “Today in Linus Pauling” is a quick summary of the major bits of work that Pauling conducted on any given day over the course of his 70+ year career as a scientist and activist for peace. We’ll do our best to update this information every day. (…except, probably, on weekends. The PaulingBlog doesn’t come in on weekends.) For our regular readers, “Today in Linus Pauling” will, no doubt, serve as a useful illustration of Pauling’s remarkable industry — a trait that, as much as any other, defined him as a scholar and as a person.
