Description
Photocopies of legal documents pertaining to litigation initiated Arthur B. Robinson, an employee and co-founder of the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine, against Linus Pauling, the Institute, and several members of the Board of Trustees for, among other charges, wrongful firing, slander, and seizure of Robinson's research and equipment. The case was settled before it was to have been heard in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of San Mateo.
Background
Arthur Robinson (1942- ) was an undergraduate at Cal Tech in the early 1960s while Linus Pauling was a faculty member there. Robinson subsequently earned a Ph.D. in biochemistry at UCSD in 1968 and eventually took a position in the university's chemistry department. Robinson resigned his UCSD faculty post in 1972, and Pauling resigned his faculty position at Stanford University, as they formed a partnership to found the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine.
