Linus Pauling's oxygen meter was developed as a military project and the details were classified. In this letter, Pauling requested permission to discuss the oxygen meter at a Caltech seminar. He also states a desire to co-author publications with James H. Sturdivant, Reuben E. Wood, Arnold O. Beckman and David Shoemaker.
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.
