Linus Pauling and the Structure of Proteins: A Documentary History<http://scarc.library.oregonstate.edu/coll/pauling/proteins/index.html>
In the early 1930s, prompted by the need to attract funding during the Great Depression, Linus Pauling moved away from his very successful program of research on the structure of crystals in favor of new pursuits on biological topics. What followed was a now legendary - and often tumultuous - multi-decade series of investigations into the structure of proteins, the nature of antibodies and antigens, and the properties of hemoglobin. Using more than 400 documents, photographs and multimedia snippets, and centered around a Narrative written by Pauling’s biographer, this website tells the story of the great achievements that led Francis Crick to describe Pauling as "one of the founders of molecular biology."

Linus Pauling and the Structure of Proteins is the sixth in the Oregon State University Libraries<http://library.oregonstate.edu/> Special Collections & Archives Research Centers’<http://scarc.library.oregonstate.edu/> series of documentary history websites focusing on specific aspects of Pauling’s remarkable life and career.  It is available at http://scarc.library.oregonstate.edu/coll/pauling/proteins/index.html
