About this book

In the small `Fly Room' at Columbia University, T.H. Morgan and his students, A.H. Sturtevant, C.B. Bridges, and H.J. Muller, carried out the work that laid the foundations of modern, chromosomal genetics. The excitement of those times, when the whole field of genetics was being created, is captured in this book, first written in 1965 by one of those present at the beginning, and now reprinted. His account is one of the few authoritative, analytic works on the early history of genetics.
