W HEN SEWALL WRIGHT wrote a recommendation for H. J. MULLER in the late 1930s, he described MULLER as perhaps the greatest living geneticist. WRIGHT later expressed this evaluation in conversation on many occasions. But when it came to the relationships among genetics, evolution and systematics, WRIGHT’S clear candidate for honors in the MORGAN group was A. H. STURTEVANT. From his student days on, STURTEVANT had been an avid taxonomist of Drosophila and its close relatives. When WRIGHT first… CONTINUE READING
