Two-time Nobel laureate Linus Pauling announced Wednesday that he is stepping down as chairman of the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine, an organization he founded 20 years ago. "It was getting to be sort of nuisance to me to handle the administrative problems," said Pauling, who is 91. Pauling, who has published more than 1,000 papers and books since 1923, has been a staunch defender of the strength of Vitamin C in fighting cardiovascular disease and cancer.

At the occasion of Linus Pauling's 90th birthday, Shari Roan wrote an article about him that contains many fine parts. Yet the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine (LPI) is presented as an institution that still performs "some research that many scientists regard dubiously," although it "recently landed some respectable projects." Lightly dismissive formulations such as the above may originate in the wake of the controversy that has surrounded Dr. Pauling's stand on Vitamin C (ascorbate)

Two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus C. Pauling, a leader in the fight against nuclear weapons and an advocate of vitamin C to prevent cancer, the common cold and other diseases, died Friday. He was 93. Pauling died at his ranch in the Big Sur area about 7:20 p.m., according to the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine in Palo Alto. He had been in frail health for several months, according to the institute. Pauling was the only person ever to win two unshared Nobel Prizes.

Taking humor seriously can boost your health and wealth, say the businessmen, doctors, psychologists and educators at a conference on "The Power of Laughter and Play." Just listen to Ashley Montagu, the 82-year-old anthropologist and social biologist who says he wants to "die young at a ripe old age." Montagu opened the recent four-day conference with the warning that "adults are nothing more than deteriorated children."

Two-time Nobel laureate Linus Pauling says he is heartened by recent findings that large doses of Vitamin E may help prevent heart disease and that Vitamin C may prevent certain cancers. For a quarter of a century Pauling has researched Vitamin C, Vitamin E and beta-carotene. He advocates taking very large doses of vitamins to prevent heart disease and cancer. Although some medical colleagues have said his theories are far-fetched, recent evidence appears to support them. "In the old days I was mentioned as being an example of one of those quacks," said Pauling, his shock of white hair tucked under a trademark black beret.

He was both revered and reviled as he divided his long and productive life between the science of chemistry and the concerns of humanity. But when Linus C. Pauling died Friday of prostate cancer at age 93 at his beloved home in Big Sur, he was remembered around the world with unanimity as one of the most imposing and significant figures of the 20th Century.

"The last time I counted," says Linus Pauling, his blue eyes sparkling beneath a charcoal-colored beret, "I have seven birthday parties to go to." With that, the aging guru shuffles off to graciously accept the first of many birthday cakes and equally sugary tributes to his longevity, this one from his staff at the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine.

In a worn leather chair in an ugly converted warehouse on the poorer side of town sits one of the last of a breed--Dr. Linus Pauling, the American maverick. For 50 years, the two-time Nobel laureate with the pioneering spirit has made headlines with countless achievements and an array of controversial causes.

From a windswept point along California's most spectacular shoreline, an old professor who holds the world's most prestigious award for peace plans his next moves in a deeply personal war. Many have said that for Linus Pauling, the war should have ended a long time ago when the medical profession refused to embrace his theory of Vitamin C as a panacea for all sorts of afflictions, including cancer. But the only person in history to win two unshared Nobel prizes would have none of that.
