It must be the hemoglobin, because in arterial blood the hemoglobin is oxygenated, and in the venous blood it is not oxygenated. These people must manufacture a different kind of hemoglobin from ordinary people.

The intellectual thrill of being onto something entirely new yet suddenly clear carried him into a promising line of inquiry. I remember the feeling of excitement when, during the few seconds after my friend, Dr. Castle, had talked about sickle-cell anemia, I thought that it might be possible that this disease is a disease of the hemoglobin molecule rather than of the red cells of the blood. Diseases of this sort may be called molecular diseases.
By learning the molecular structure of the molecules that cause these diseases we can understand what the mechanisms of the diseases are, and possibly may develop drugs on the basis of this knowledge. In the absence of oxygen in the venous blood, Pauling speculated, the sickle-cell hemoglobin would undergo a structural change that resulted in crystallization.
And yet the Caltech researcher Harvey Itano, whom he enlisted to help him, found the hemoglobin of afflicted persons no different from that of healthy ones in size, molecular weight, and other essentials.
When the twenty-three-year-old James D. Watson, schooled at the University of Chicago and Indiana University, arrived in at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge, England, he came bearing the expertise in genetics of the American phage people, and intended to absorb the knowledge of chemical structure that Francis Crick and his clan possessed.
By the early s Pauling had been stalking the secret of life for a good long time. English crystallographers were publishing amino acid studies without descriptions of structure and with X-ray diffraction reports that misinterpreted the structural patterns they recorded. Confirmed in their basic suppositions, Pauling and Corey began constructing models out of wood, metal, and plastic to render the exact helical coils of the polypeptide chain that formed the protein.
These were, as Judson writes, precisely scaled physical representations of the atoms — open three-dimensional puzzles in which the individual pieces to be fitted together already carried many of the limitations of angles, lengths, and sizes.
The models themselves had to be fabricated with great care; even very slight errors of angle or size would make them useless. Working from their models, Pauling and Corey joined sometimes by another former Caltech colleague, Herman Branson published a series of articles in and describing proposed structures for hemoglobin and various other proteins found in substances ranging from hair to muscle to feathers.
And yet in the end Watson and Crick got the epochal question right while Pauling got it wrong. Pauling would say he had not really been concentrating on DNA as he usually did on the work in front of him; but perhaps he had been eyeing the prize rather than the work itself. His is an all-American story. He was the proverbial young man in a hurry, and he worked as feverishly as he did not only for the thrill of knowing or the esteem of his colleagues but also to rise in the world in just the way that most men, and especially most Americans, understood that phrase: to ascend in social status and to secure material comfort and even to steal a taste of luxury, to make it and make it as big as he could as fast as he could.
Young Pauling despised the coarseness and gaucherie of the milieu he grew up in: the Caltech roommate and longstanding friend who ate with his knife and failed to button his vest all the way up sent Linus into conniptions of disgust, as he wrote to his wife-to-be. A career in science offered a way up and out for many young men who were born into circumstances that failed to comport with their notion of natural rank.
The climb took diligence and thrift, single-mindedness and patience: the reigning virtues of a commercial republic and emergent meritocracy. Patience was among the virtues that came hardest to Pauling. His preternatural mental quickness enabled him to race ahead much faster than the pack, and it seemed only just that his obvious superiority should be decked straightaway with all available prizes.
But he learned that only hard work would get him what he wanted, and he knew early the pleasure of doing work he loved. So his reaching the heights he longed for came as no surprise, but was a rich satisfaction he knew he had rightly won.
With his belief that talent and the necessary effort will carry a man as far as he wishes, that in America one will have the life he makes for himself and therefore deserves, young Pauling was a patriot and a Republican born and bred. Not that he paid much attention to politics at first; unlike the natural philosophers of old, most scientists in the nineteenth and early twentieth century were apolitical animals, steering clear of entanglements with government.
But the alarming extent to which scientific expertise enhanced the human capacity for murderousness would change that for many honorable men, as well as for numerous fools and scoundrels. But Ava Helen Pauling had her own career as an activist first for civil rights and civil liberties, and then against nuclear testing, and finally for peace, feminism, and responsible stewardship of the environment. Check, check, and check: all the requisite boxes for certifiable wisdom and decency are duly filled.
And while the honorific visionary used to pertain to such figures as William Blake, Emanuel Swedenborg, and St. Thomas Hager writes that in the early years of their marriage the couple did not discuss politics with each other, and as proof he observes that Linus reflexively voted twice for Herbert Hoover as president. It is possible that they did discuss politics but that they went their separate ways on these matters.
Linus Pauling would always credit Ava Helen with saving him from the moral blindness that afflicted him in his youth: the outmoded Republican confidence that each person is responsible for his own success or failure, and that in a just democratic society the equality of opportunity will necessarily yield a striking inequality of outcome, because there is an undeniable sense in which all men are not created equal.
Linus was made to see that in his rush to make his way out of comparative poverty, he had ignored the multitudes whom he left behind. The Democratic Party seemed pretty clearly to correspond somewhat more closely to what I thought was right than the Republican Party. Once he began to think about it, he began to see things as she saw them. The deepening economic crisis and the social unrest it engendered seemed to offer proof of the bankruptcy of capitalism. In , Linus voted for the Democratic candidate for governor of California, the socialist Upton Sinclair, the most celebrated of the literary muckrakers, who had afflicted his countrymen with exemplary moral and physical nausea nearly three decades earlier, as his bestselling novel The Jungle exposed the loathsomeness of the meat-packing industry and the need for an American reconstitution on socialist principles.
100 Ways to Live to 100
Linus was his own man in the lab and in the seminar room. Man of Peace, Days of War Of course, Pauling was not alone among scientists in leaning so far to the left. The English crystallographer J. Bernal excoriated the scientific community of the time as subservient to the industrial and militarist demands of an oppressive and even monstrous economic order; only by bending their work to the betterment of the toiling masses could scientists fulfill their truly progressive function in society.
Measured against this company of moral dwarves Pauling looked almost like a full-grown man. The inflamed readership took to action of a sort, and, as Hager reports, sixty Union Now chapters with three thousand members appeared throughout the land.
Ava Helen lent a strong hand in the Pasadena office, and she pressed Linus to lend his eloquence to the cause. Perpetual peace is the hallmark fantasy of the democratic era, common to demagogue politicians, beauty-pageant contestants, and even the occasional philosopher of genius, Immanuel Kant the most notable of the latter.
Cranking up the voltage as he approaches the peroration of his To Perpetual Peace , Kant attempts to convince his audience that if men can conceive the just world order, they can achieve it: Now we have seen above that a federative state of nations whose only purpose is to prevent war is the only state of right compatible with their freedom.
Thus, it is possible to make politics commensurable with morality only in a federative union Philosophy must prepare the way for this political perfection, by publicly unveiling the sinister and endlessly destructive nature of politics as men have traditionally practiced it, and by educating the rulers and populace alike of the potential for unexampled earthly happiness. He believed that there existed a world of human affairs, like the world of molecules, that could be understood and made rational.
Once again, structure was the key. Kant is more than confident that he understands the question rightly, but he nevertheless ends on a note of caution: the salutary transformation of the world can proceed only gradually and will take a very long time. Pauling on the other hand expects mankind to ride the surge of his prophetic energy to the inevitable swift and glorious fulfillment of his vision.
And why not?
The Man Who Thought of Everything
Science speeds ever forward, gaining velocity with each passing moment, while philosophy is prone to dawdle, and slow to excite the compliance of the multitude. It would not do Pauling justice to say that he believed himself to be on the right side of history; he believed that history was decisively on his side, and it would arrange itself neatly to conform to the unimpeachably reasonable plans he had for it.
But first there was a war to be fought, in which scientists would play a crucial role.
Jewett, who happened to be a Caltech alumnus, convinced the United States government to enlist the immense cerebral engine of American science in the war effort, under the Office of Scientific Research and Development. One such session got Pauling started on the problem of monitoring the oxygen level in submarines — insufficient oxygen would debilitate the crew, and too much would increase the risk of an explosion.
Pauling knew that oxygen, unlike most common gases, was attracted to a magnet, and the more oxygen there was, the greater the attraction; and he knew that Archimedes had measured the density of a liquid by noting how far it would buoy a solid object suspended in it.
Pauling reckoned that a body suspended in an air sample would respond to changes in a magnetic field and would register the oxygen level in the air. He sketched a measuring apparatus of exceeding delicacy, presented his plans to a Caltech colleague who constructed a prototype device, and a month later the National Defense Research Committee issued a contract for several hundred Pauling Oxygen Analyzers. Eventually manufactured by Beckman Instruments, a firm founded by a sometime Caltech chemistry professor, the perfected devices would also be used to enhance aviation medicine, improve industrial safety, and maintain healthy oxygen levels in incubators for premature babies.
Pauling also did breakthrough work in developing a superior rocket propellant, which mitigated the chronic problem with weaponry that wandered far off target or exploded in mid-air.
He collaborated on an armor-piercing shell; he worked on producing synthetic materials for optical devices of surpassing refinement; he was the indispensable point man in making artificial blood plasma, although demand for the product would be obviated by the overwhelming success of a national blood drive; with his left hand he figured out a code that he was sure would stump the most cunning Axis cryptographers, though the War Department never did get back to him on that.
Robert Oppenheimer offered Pauling the directorship of the chemistry division on the Manhattan Project, but he turned down the job.

After a heated meeting the APA advised us they would let us have their decision in a few weeks. We have not yet heard from them. Pauling became very supportive of the work being done by our colleagues. Within a few years we agreed that we were in fact practising Orthomolecular psychiatry and that we should officially adopt this term as representative of what we were doing. In Dr. Pauling co-edited a book called "Orthomolecular Psychiatry. Ross Maclean's home in Vancouver.
During this meeting, where there was a free exchange of data, it occurred to us that we had an immense amount of valuable material which ought to be made known to the world. We all agreed to contribute and Dr. David Hawkins agreed to undertake the role as editor.
Later we asked Pauling if he would be the editor. He refused to be editor but agreed to be co-editor on condition that he see every manuscript and approve of it before it was published.
He did not want to be only a name. We were delighted.
This amazing book has sold well - except to psychiatrists - and contains an immense amount of essential information. By now Pauling was fully identified with the new paradigm and with Orthomolecular psychiatry and medicine. There he and his colleagues began to study the relation between vitamin B3, vitamin C and schizophrenia, but he could not do any clinical research.
He was our guest speaker at three annual Nutritional Medicine Today conferences, once in Vancouver and twice in Toronto. In Vancouver well over 1, people came to hear him. A few years later he became interested in vitamin C's anti cancer potential.
He had been invited to address the Ben May Institute which had recently been opened. During his address he suggested that vitamin C might he useful in the treatment of cancer.
But one of his most severe critics, Dr. Victor Herbert, was there and was extremely critical of this statement. This challenged Pauling to examine the literature. He later met Dr. Ewan Cameron who was using vitamin C in treating his terminal cancer patients.
Their book in was as major shock to the medical establishment. Had it been written by any other two people it would simply have been ignored. This book was very exciting to me because by chance I has already seen what a combination of vitamin B3 and vitamin C had done to a few patients with terminal cancer. Within a few years I began to receive large numbers of referrals from physicians in Victoria.
By I had seen 41 patients. Most of them were terminal, having failed to respond to treatment, having relapsed, or were considered untreatable. I began to suspect that the patients on the regimen were doing better. I therefore examined carefully the outcome of all patients seen between and Eleven had not followed the program. Of this small group all were dead.
They had lived 4. From the 26 who did follow the program 18 were alive and their mean survival was I had decided to use the hardest, most reliable data available, i. Several years later I was at a Festschrift for Dr. Arthur Sackler. Pauling was there. He was remarkably blunt and accused the Mayo group of lying about their study.
The first morning I visited him in his motel room, next to mine. He had finished breakfast with Linus Jr. I found him with a hand calculator doing some calculations. He told me he was recalculating electron orbitals.
He added that he was able to understand them by doing his own calculations. I later told him that I believed he and Cameron were correct in their claim that vitamin C was helpful for the treatment of cancer. He asked me whether I intended to publish. I replied that I did not.
I added that there was no point in preparing a report since no medical journal would accept it for publication. He then urged me to proceed with more careful follow-up studies on the much larger group I had seen by then, and that he would help me find a journal that would publish. I agreed that this would be a good thing to do. But when I arrived home I changed my mind. I did not relish the massive work that would be involved in doing a large scale follow up and I was not certain Pauling really was serious about this.
I thought he was simply trying to be nice and friendly by his encouragement. I did nothing until two years later I received a letter from Linus in which he asked where the data was. I promptly apologized to him and said I would get to it immediately. I did a follow up on the first patients I had seen from over a ten year interval. In the meantime, Pauling had become interested in methods of calculating probable outcome using cohorts of patients based upon the Hardin Jones biostatistical method.
He applied this method to the data I had sent him. My examinations of the data convinced me that the patients on the regimen had a much better outlook.
His examination was much more detailed and showed a very significant improvement of the treated compared to the untreated group. We published the results of this and a subsequent study in this journal because even the Academy of Sciences, Washington, refused to publish Pauling's clinical papers.
Pauling had been criticized severely after the two Mayo clinic reports were published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Pauling was incensed by these reports, not because they could not find any beneficial effect from their use of ascorbic acid, but because they claimed that they had exactly reproduced the earlier Cameron clinical studies when they had not done so. The journal would not accept a rebuttal paper by Cameron and Pauling. After almost a year, Pauling discussed this with a New York lawyer who wrote to the editor.
Shortly after that Dr.
Pauling received a letter stating that they had misplaced his file but were now informing him they were rejecting his rebuttal. Pauling had requested to be told immediately so he could, if he wanted to, submit his rebuttal to other journals, but he preferred to have it published in the same journal which had carried the two Mayo reports.
The New England Journal of Medicine has been a powerful defender of the old paradigm, and generally refused to accept positive papers about megavitamin treatment. Linus Pauling was a great teacher, a brilliant investigator, a sensitive and honest colleague, and a great humanitarian. The foundation he laid will never be forgotten and the work he started has a momentum so great that it can no longer be hindered or stopped.
A scientist will be judged not only by the goodness of the work and by the opinion of his peers, but also by the quality of his enemies and critics. Professor Linus Pauling had innumerable friends and supporters from the lay public, from his co-workers and colleagues who knew him and his work well. There would be too many to list nor are they even all known. His critics were few. As listed in the news reports following his death they included: He labelled him a communist. The State Department took away his passport in This probably cost him a Nobel Prize for discovering the three dimensional structure of the DNA molecule.
Arthur Robinson, who had been his colleague and supporter, who accused him of suppressing his research because it did not agree with Pauling's view on ascorbic acid and cancer.
Robinson, invited to discuss the research being done at the Pauling Institute, instead launched an attack against Dr. This was embarrassing to those at the meeting who did not have the slightest idea this is what he would do. He later accused Dr. Pauling of hurting his wife who had cancer by giving her vitamin C. Matthias Rath has charged Pauling with stealing his ideas about vitamin C and its role in the genesis of arteriosclerosis. This suit has not been settled.
Victor Herbert has enjoyed attacking Dr. Pauling for his views on vitamin C. He maintained that Pauling was psychotic about vitamin C, calling him delusional. Herbert maintained that Pauling had shortened his life by taking vitamin C.

He added that had Pauling not taken any vitamin C he would have lived to age He must have been privy to information not available to anyone else, but his criticisms were major spurs which persuaded Dr. Pauling to investigate the connection between vitamin C and the common cold and cancer. We should thank Dr. Herbert for having been such a stimulus.
If he had not, perhaps a lot of the excellent work accomplished by Dr. Pauling might not have been done.
The topic was "Therapeutic Potential of Biological Antioxidants". A few months before this meeting it was suggested to Dr. Pauling that he record a statement to this meeting in the event that he died before it was held. He refused to do so, firmly believing he would be able to deliver it himself.
As I listened to the various speakers, from about twenty universities from USA and around the world, it was amply clear that a meeting of this type could not have been held if Dr. Pauling had retired at age 65 when he first contemplated doing so.
Tribute was paid to Dr.
