Abstract or Summary
  • An essay reflecting on the collection of molecular models held in the Ava Helen and Linus Pauling Papers, with particular mention made of specific models about which amusing or insightful anecdotes are known. Reference is made to Pauling's involvement in the development of CPK models; his use of models in lecture; his development of a quick method for creating models using marbles and balloons; and the ways in which the OSU Libraries Special Collections built upon Pauling's legacy by creating models of their own that depict early crystal structures that Pauling solved during his years at Caltech.
