Linus Pauling exhibit
Message #1 Posted by Karl Schneider on 12 Nov 2007, 1:01 p.m.

A recent news article from the Corvallis Gazette-Times describes what is apparently a permanent-exhibit "showcase office" commemorating Dr. Linus Pauling at Oregon State University in Corvallis.

A brief excerpt:

The room on the fifth floor of the Valley Library includes Pauling’s chalkboard ..., his Hewlett-Packard calculator, his two solid-gold Nobel Prizes and an original manuscript of “The Nature of the Chemical Bond.”

I'd certainly like to see Pauling's Nobels -- and, of course, what kind of HP he had :-). I was unaware of this exhibit when I visited Corvallis several years ago, and it possibly did not exist at the time. H-P still has a complex in Corvallis -- which was formerly the headquarters of the Calculator division, but I don't believe that there's any public calculator exhibit at those offices anymore.
