When Daniel Coit Gilman became the first president of Johns Hopkins University in 1875, he assembled a remarkable group of scholars to supervise the graduate work there. Among these were two biologists: W. K. Brooks, who had studied with L. Agassiz, and H. Newell Martin, a student of Michael Foster and T. H. Huxley. These two trained a whole generation of outstanding zoologists, two of them being of especial importance in the history of genetics-Edmund Beecher Wilson and Thomas Hunt Morgan.
