Linus Pauling

OPB | May 30, 2011 8 p.m.

Linus Pauling is considered one of the greatest chemists of the 20th century.  A brilliant scientist and humanitarian he made revolutionary discoveries in chemistry, physics, molecular biology and medicine; then used his international fame and popularity to promote world peace. Targeted by the FBI and labeled a Communist during the height of the Cold War, Linus Pauling is the only person in history to win two unshared Nobel Prizes.
