Author Patricia D'Andrade's Acknowledgements:
This curriculum is the joint project of the Linus Pauling Institute, which carries out research in orthomolecular medicine inspired by Linus Pauling, and the OSU Libraries Special Collections, home of the Ava Helen and Linus Pauling Papers. I wish to express my appreciation to Ober Tyus for suggesting the project, to Balz Frei and the faculty at LPI for willingly answering my questions, to Clifford Mead for his confidence in my efforts, to Chris Petersen and Chris Jolly for their help at Special Collections, and to Tom Hager for his encouragement.
This website is a product of the Oregon State University Libraries Special Collections: Cliff Mead, Head of Special Collections; Chris Petersen, Faculty Research Assistant; Ryan Wick, Information Technology Consultant.
The curriculum text was written by Patricia D'Andrade, originally for use by fellows of the Linus Pauling Institute, and later by OSU honors chemistry undergraduates.
Special thanks are due to Jason Hughson and Michelle Spatz, who contributed to the editing of the site's text, and to Monica Jacobson, who encoded the text and images for display on the web. Thanks also to Jeff Geisinger, who created the site's banner graphic.
