191 Notes Introduction 1. I use her first name throughout this book, though I usually avoid in my work what feels like a presumptuous practice. The difficulty is—appropriately to the subject—that convention generally recognizes her husband Linus as “Pauling,” and so the way I clarify which Pauling I refer to at any time is contextually determined. 2.

And that’s where all 10 children were born. It’s about 4 miles from Beaver Creek at a place called Four Corners. The farm is one of the corners of Four Corners. That’s half a mile or a mile perhaps from Highland. The Highland school perhaps is still there. And the farmhouse that Nora Gard built I think after the divorce is still there.

I have not determined whether Mrs. Miller purchased or rented this house, and what kind of relationship she maintained with her college-aged children.
