For their efforts, along with a scientist named Wilkins, they were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology of Medicine in 1962 for their fascinating discoveries. James Watson was born April 6, 1928 (age 86) Chicago, Illinois. He was fascinated with bird watching, a hobby shared with his father, so he considered majoring in ornithology. Watson appeared on a popular radio show that challenged bright youngsters to answer questions. Thanks to the liberal policy of University president Robert Hutchins, he enrolled at the University of Chicago, where he was awarded a tuition scholarship, at the age of 15.
While at Northwestern, Hall attended classes with a fellow student named Carroll L. Griffith who would later go on to become the founder of Griffith Laboratories. After graduation, Hall earned a graduate degree from the University of Chicago. Hall was soon hired by the Western Electric Company through a telephone interview. When he showed up for his first day, however, he was told by a personnel officer that "we don't take niggers." Recovering from this slight, he began working for the Chicago Department of Health as a chemist and was promoted in 1917 to senior chemist.
He was thrilled by the flight, and though his father wanted him to become a doctor, his mother encouraged him to pursue that dream. After attending the University of Arizona and University of Cincinnati, he joined the Army Air Corps in 1937. On August 17 1942, he led a dozen B-17 Flying Fortresses on the first daylight raid by an American squadron on German-occupied Europe, bombing railroad marshaling yards in the French city of Rouen. He flew General Dwight D. Eisenhower to Gibraltar in November 1942 en route to the launching of Operation Torch, the invasion of North Africa, and participated in the first bombing missions of that campaign.
Shomoi K. Francis March 3, 2011 Ms. Wright Chemistry 1 Patricia Bath Patricia Bath was born on November 4, 1942, and the daughter of Rupert and Gladys Bath. Her father an immigrant from Trinidad was a newspaper columnist, a merchant seaman and the first black man to work for the New York City Subway as a motorman. She was raised in Harlem; Bath was motivated academically by her parents. Inspired by Albert Schweitzer, she applied for and won a National Science Foundation Scholarship while attending Charles Evans Hughes High School; this led her to a research project at Yeshiva University and Harlem Hospital Center on cancer that irritated her interest in medicine. I n 1960, still a teenager, Bath won the "Merit Award" of Mademoiselle Magazine for her contribution to the project.
Amy McGraw 1 Amy McGraw Assessment and Counseling Kristy L. Hardwick April 23, 2010 The Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory is referred to as the SASSI. Dr. Glenn A. Miller developed the SASSI for a screening questionnaire to discover if people have a high likelihood of substance dependence disorder. Dr. Glenn Miller dreamed of owning his own business and making it grow and thrive. The business opened and was close to where the family lived. Dr. Miller and his wife called their new business “Quest for Camelot.” In 1967 Dr. Miller earned his Ph.D. from Illinois University in Clinical Psychology where he specialized in assessment.
Harlow’s hard work, along with other psychologists such as John Bowlby, has helped to spark a revolution in our approach to childcare. The brilliance that Harlow showed began at an early age. He was born in 1905 as Harry Israel to a father who was a failed inventor, and a mother who wrote a partial autobiography (Slater, 4). Growing up, he never really fit in. Even as a 10-year-old boy, he experienced bouts of depression (Slater, 5).

He later goes on to establish the U.S. Army Biological Warfare facilities in Maryland, Utah, and Panama, and is named to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. While there, he begins a series of radiation exposure experiments on American soldiers and civilian hospital patients. 1932 The Tuskegee Syphilis Study begins.
Evolution by natural selection Danielle L. Robisky BIO 101 01/12/14 Barbara Zorn-Arnold Evolution by Natural Selection In this experiment I studied the important principles of evolution by examining small populations of finches on two different islands, "Darwin Island" and "Wallace Island." Then I manipulated important parameters that influence natural selection and followed how the changes influence the evolution of beak size and population numbers for the two different populations of finches over selected time intervals. A medium to large population of finches have been discovered on Darwin and Wallace Island. The population is 500 finches at Darwin Island, and 500 finches at Wallace Island. It is 1997 the scientist measured the
Prologue: Yali’s Question In July 1972, Jared Diamond was studying bird evolution in New Guinea, where he met a local Aborigine politician named Yali. Yali asked many questions as they talked about the origins of their ancestors and the evolution of it. A question Yali asks is “why is it you white people developed so much cargo and brought it to New Guinea, but we black people had little cargo of our own?” It was a simple question but has inspired Jared Diamond to write this book as he attempts to answer Yali’s question decades later. Jared explains the importance of writing this book with evidence from modern history and societies, he also explains the smarts between us and the Aborigines
He discussed transmutation with his friend Joseph Dalton Hooker, who read the essay in 1847. After turning his attention to biology and completing eight years of work on barnacles, Darwin intensified work on his theory of species in 1854. Alfred Russel Wallace, a naturalist working in Borneo, had a paper on the "introduction" of species published in Annals and Magazine of Natural History. This made guarded comments about evolution, and in the spring of 1856 it was noticed by Lyell who drew it to the attention of Darwin who was then working out a strategy for presenting his theory. Darwin apparently mistook Wallace's meaning, writing "nothing very new...
