Martha Fowler, W.A. Fowler's younger daughter, shakes the hand of President Gerald R. Ford at the white house reception for awardees of the Natonal medal of Science on 18 September, 1975. Left is Linus Pauling and center is W. A. Fowler, both recipients of the medal. Martha Fowler was frequent baby sitter for Clayton's sons during 1960-63 (see Clayton family photo from 1961 on this site). This is a rare photo of Pauling and Fowler together, two of Caltech's superstars. This photo was a gift to Clayton in 1975 from Fowler, and is surely a White House public relations photo.
