Giunta, C.J. ~ 1962- C. Giunta operates a website where one can get brief copies of Langmuir's, Kossel's, and others' classical papers. He also gives good links to other sites, the link-title being : Other web sites on (mainly) the History of Chemistry, History of Science, and Scientific Biography. 50 KB C.J. Giunta's short CV at the Faculty Page of the Le Moyne College, Syracuse, NY, USA. Some interesting connections to the early classics of the chemical bond.
Gill, Peter M. W. ~ 1963-
