On October 10, 2013, members of Veterans For Peace, Chapter 156, Rogue Valley, Oregon visited Corvallis and toured the exhibit.  They were in town at the invitation of one of VFP Corvallis’ members, Linda Richards, to help honor the legacy of Ava Helen and Linus Pauling on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Dr. Pauling’s Nobel Peace.

Members of VFP chapters from Corvallis, Eugene/Springfield and Rogue Valley later toured the OSU Archives containing the papers of the Paulings and attended several events honoring Dr. Pauling.  They were even permitted to hold both the Nobel Prizes awarded Dr. Pauling, the only person ever awarded two individual Nobel Prizes.

Dr. Linus Pauling's Nobel Peace Prize awarded in 1962 for his anti-nuclear war efforts.
