A few excerpts about his Pasadena experience are included below; the entire interview has been archived in our History of Science Oral History Collection OH I was admitted to both of them.
And, as I said, I visited my brother and he introduced me to Oppenheimer, who had been professor both at Berkeley and Caltech and I asked him what he would do. So I think that was it. So I think he was basically — well I talked with my brother about it, also, but that was sort of how I made my decision to go to Caltech and I think it was a good decision. He was a great lecturer. But the most impressive thing was that he gave the students problems as homework problems and everyone worked very hard on them.

But that was part of his methodology. So that very much impressed me. We had a big party at the — we lived in this house in Altadena where a number of us, Sidney Bernhard, Alex Rich; Matt Meselson was involved in it too. We all lived together. I and Sidney were the cooks and the others washed the dishes and cleaned up, and we had this big party.
We had often had parties and Dick Feynman would come and play the drums.
And Pauling and Ava Helen came to this party. We had a lot of snails in the garden and Pauling went out and collected them. I never asked what they actually did with them, with this collection, but he had this big collection of snails which he took home.
I remember he gave a public lecture on water which was just unbelievable. I talked with him a number of times about looking at larger systems and he was very encouraging. Anyways, when he came to our parties he played the drums; he was really part of the Caltech spirit. Bright Wilson Jr. Scandinavian Airlines keepsake, December 6, It was a fantastic opportunity that Pauling was eager to seize. Prompted by the invitation, he made plans to set out on a broader world tour in late , intending to visit India as well as Japan, Israel and Greece, among other countries.
The center of much of the passport drama was Ruth B.
Shipley , the Director of the Passport Office. In Pauling was accused by various media outlets of being a communist, although he adamantly denied maintaining any ties to the Communist party.
In January , based on these allegations, Shipley flat-out denied Pauling a passport, a decision that was eventually overturned by the State Department, which granted him a limited passport in July. Nonetheless, Pauling had plans to travel to Europe that year which had to be put off.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower entered office in and appointed Oveta Culp Hobby as Secretary of the new Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, a fledgling administration known to withhold grant money from suspected communists. Despite his lack of success in carrying out his world tour the previous winter, Pauling still hoped that he could sort out his issues with the federal bureaucracy and reschedule his travel plans to make it to the next Indian Science Congress in January But by October , Pauling was admitting defeat, writing to the Secretary of State that he no longer planned on traveling during the upcoming winter.
This was in response to yet another letter that Pauling had received from Shipley, telling him that he could appeal the decision of the Passport Office to reject his request for validation to the Board of Passport Appeals.
