Today marks the 111th anniversary of Linus Pauling’s birth and what better way to mark the occasion than by announcing the recipient of an award named after Dr. Pauling?
Dr. Roald Hoffmann, chemist, educator, author and Nobel laureate, is the seventh person to be given the Linus Pauling Legacy Award, which is granted every other year to an individual who has achieved in an area once of interest to Linus Pauling. The award is sponsored by the Oregon State University Libraries. You can read more about Dr. Hoffmann on the Pauling Blog “Roald Hoffmann is the 2012 Pauling Legacy Award Winner.”
As part of the celebration marking Hoffmann’s acceptance of the decoration, he will be delivering a free public lecture in Portland, OR. Seating is limited and we suggest that individuals or groups interested in attending reserve seats. To do so, please contact the Special Collections & Archives Research Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-737-2075.
