These handwritten notes (by an unidentified author) detail the process by which Linus Pauling came to National Technical Laboratories to produce his oxygen meter design and how this lead to the formation of Arnold O. Beckman, Inc. These notes also mention a CalTech student "of the hippy type" who had to be told "to dress and bathe properly before contacting customers."
Developed from a Linus Pauling design during WWII, the technology behind Beckman Instruments’ oxygen analyzers ended up doing such diverse jobs as monitoring astronauts’ respiration, maintaining packaged food safety, and preventing blindness in newborn babies.
