Dr. Pauling was born February 28, 1901 in Portland, Oregon. After his death in 1994, the governor of the state of Oregon declared February 28th as "Linus Pauling Day" to honor this great man and his achievements.
Each year on February 28, the Linus Pauling Institute holds an event in honor of Dr. Pauling's life and legacy. Our events showcasing the research from the Institute and demonstrating how Dr. Pauling changed the face of nutrition science.
This year, like the previous two years, we are holding a webinar on vitamin C (see right). For 2023, the Linus Pauling Institute will also be hosting an open house at the Linus Pauling Science Center on the Corvallis campus of Oregon State University starting from 4 to 6 pm on Tuesday, February 28. All are welcome to attend!
Open House: Please RSVP by February 24th
Since this event coincides with the OSU Annual Food Drive, we encourage everyone to consider bringing a non-perishable food item or cash donation for the cause. Everyone who contributed on Linus Pauling Day will come home with one of our books!
