The terrific hour long documentary Oregon Experience: Linus Pauling, produced by Oregon Public Broadcasting, is now available online.
In addition to the documentary feature – which incorporates a large amount of archival material as well as interviews with numerous Pauling scholars in telling the story of Pauling’s life – the Oregon Experience website includes several video extras that did not make the final cut. Included among them are a fascinating tour of Pauling’s boyhood home on Hawthorne Street in Portland; Cliff Mead’s recounting of a rather nerve-racking pop quiz that Pauling sprung on him in 1987; and Ken Hedberg telling his famous basalt story.
Oregon Experience: Linus Pauling is well worth your time – anyone with an even passing interest in Pauling’s career will find the film to be engaging and informative. The program may be viewed at:
