This article is based on the Priestley Medal Address presented by Linus C. Pauling on April 9, during the ACS spring meeting in St. Louis. Still active at 83, Pauling is director of the Linus Pauling Institute of Science & Medicine, Palo Alto, Calif., where he continues his scientific research. Much of his work has dealt with the nature of the chemical bond. The Priestley Medal, ACS's highest award, recognizes his contributions in this and other areas, and is the latest in a long list of honors and awards Pauling has received, including the 1954 Nobel Prize in Chemistry and the 1962 Nobel Peace Prize.
