Letter from Gerald Oster to Linus Pauling. January 26, 1953.
Oster writes to share his and D. P. Riley's equatorial intensity calculations for the cable model protein structure recently
proposed by Pauling. Oster and Riley's calculations seem to indicate flaws in Pauling's structure. Oster also notes his
plan to further study predictions made by Pauling about the structure of alpha-keratin and suggests a possible molecular structure
for nucleoproteins. Transcript.
