The Pauling and Miller families on Linus and Ava Helen’s wedding day. Salem, Oregon. June 17, 1923.

I just saw a statement by Dr. Joyce Brothers about vacation, who said, you can never plan to go with your companion for longer than three days on vacation, because people can’t stand being with one another for more than three days.  She just doesn’t know anything!  Thirty years ago, we were in our cabin here, and my wife said to me, ‘Do you know, we’ve been married for about thirty years now, and this is the first time you and I have been alone for a week without seeing another single human being?’  Well, we were happy being by ourselves, without seeing another human being for a week, to say nothing about living together for 59 years; and rarely being away – years went by before we were ever away from one another a single night.  Many years.

-Linus Pauling, 1990.

  1. Good Morning,

    During the 1940s, Linus Pauling worked on sickle cell anemia, a search for a helical structure of DNA, and solution to protein architecture. He intuitively concluded correctly that sickle cell anemia was a disease of the hemoglobin molecule

    We are about to create an hospital to Madagascar and we want to call this hospital : The Linus Pauling Hospital for sickle cell anemia of Manakara.

    Our Partnairs : Principauty of Monaco, Pierre Fabre Foundation, 3 Sickle Cell Foundations (sos globi, Lcdm, Oild), Government of Madagascar…

    Can you give us informations about the way to contact the family for all autorisation to use the name of Linus Pauling ?
