Caption: Sewall Green Wright (1889-1988), US geneticist. Wright carried out pioneering work on population genetics, genetic drift, and calculations of gene frequency distributions. This work was used to refine and extend theories of evolution. Wright was elected a Foreign Member of the Royal Society in 1963, awarded the National Medal of Science in 1966, and awarded the Darwin Medal in 1980. Photographed in 1941, during the Ninth Symposium on Quantitative Biology (Genes and Chromosome Structure, 18 June to 2 July) at the Carnegie Institution Department of Genetics (later Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory), New York, USA.
