Jacinto Steinhardt's copy (more on him below). Monographs on Experimental Biology [series]. "Thomas Hunt Morgan (1866 – 1945) was an American evolutionary biologist, geneticist, embryologist, and science author who won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1933 for discoveries elucidating the role that the chromosome plays in heredity. Morgan received his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University in zoology in 1890 and researched embryology during his tenure at Bryn Mawr. Following the rediscovery of Mendelian inheritance in 1900, Morgan began to study the genetic characteristics of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. In his famous Fly Room at Columbia University's Schermerhorn Hall, Morgan demonstrated that genes are carried on chromosomes and are the mechanical basis of heredity. These discoveries formed the basis of the modern science of genetics. During his distinguished career, Morgan wrote 22 books and 370 scientific papers. As a result of his work, Drosophila became a major model organism in contemporary genetics. The Division of Biology which he established at the California Institute of Technology has produced seven Nobel Prize winners."—Wikipedia Genetics. ¶ "Jacinto (Jay) Steinhardt was a pioneer in military operations research and a founding member of the Operations Research Society of America (ORSA). He went on to serve as the society’s third president in 1954. Steinhardt was born in New York City and received all three of his degree locally at Columbia University. After earning his doctorate in chemistry in 1934, he became a National Research Fellow at the Physical-Chemical Institute in Copenhagen. He would go on to hold positions at the Physiological Laboratory in England, the Physical-Chemical Institute in Upsala, Sweden, and the Harvard Medical School. In 1938, he joined the National Bureau of Standards as a physical chemist."— informs.org. ¶ Chromosomes. Medical genetics. Chromosomes Genetics, Medical Genetics Hérédité. Génétique. Chromosomes.
