Oregon State University has a sample of the notebooks now available with the remainder to be up by Feb.28, this year. Don't forget to take your vitamin C :-)" Looks like they are about a third of the way though. They should have started at the beginning so we could better appreciate the narrative thread :-)

    Even the ones that are done are not in chronological order - Pauling probably arranged them loosely by subject.

    E.g. 35b has entries from 1938-1939, 1946, 1955, 1968 and 1986-1988 and seems to be about a textbook, aluminium and cancer

    44 is 1991-1994 and has lots of heavy metal stuff.

    46 is 1967-1972 and contains stuff about transition metals and loads of misc stuff.

    It's going to take a while to read his handwriting :-)
