The first essay, "Mendel and Human Genetics," is a brief (26-page) account of the origins and development of the subject. Mendel's influence was indirect, but is rightly considered as of primary importance. The emphasis, in this essay, is on the development of sound basic approaches to the study of the genetics of man, with little attention to the numerous Utopian schemes that have always been so conspicuous in the literature of eugenics.
