A Lasting Impression: The U.S. Postal Service Honors Linus Pauling

In early March, the U.S. Postal Service released a stamp honoring Linus Pauling’s lifetime of achievements. OSU celebrated the release with an unveiling and a commemorative postmark:

Also see the Pauling Blog, maintained by the OSU Libraries Special Collections department.

Bundled within the tens of thousands of web pages that we’ve developed are any number of fascinating stories – stories about Dr. Pauling and stories about, indeed, the history of twentieth century science. It is the primary aim of this blog to extract some of those stories and present them here in easily-digestible form for those who might be interested. Along the way we’ll also be sharing news from within our department – be it upcoming events, new projects soon to be released or extra insight into projects already completed.
