The three sections of The Scientific War Work of Linus C. Pauling combine to provide an unusually rich source of information on Linus Pauling's intriguing body of research conducted on behalf of the Allied effort during World War II. Navigate between the sections by using the links on the site's home page or by using the links at the top of any page within the site. Narrative - The first section tells the story of Pauling's work with the National Defense Research Committee, among other important groups, in developing tools meant to benefit the Allied cause in the European and Pacific theatres. On the left of each page is a Table of Contents, providing easy navigation from chapter to chapter within the Narrative; in the center is a section of text including links to an array of audio-visual materials and biographical information; and on the right are illustrations and quotations that amplify the narrative text. Clicking on the thumbnail opens larger versions of all illustrations. All Documents and Media - The second section provides access to nearly three-hundred primary source documents and images, including letters, manuscripts, government documents, photographs, audio clips, and published papers. Linus Pauling Day-by-Day - The third section consists of a comprehensive account of all of Linus and Ava Helen Paulings' personal and professional endeavors during the war years and beyond. The information on Linus Pauling Day-by-Day is presented in calendar form, with scanned images of documents accompanying the text. The text and images are posted for each day of Pauling's activities during this period.
