Sewall Wright taught throughout his long career. Between 1926-1955, he worked at the University of Chicago. During this time, he developed and taught both undergraduate and graduate courses. By the early 1930s, Wright’s teaching load settled into a core set of four courses: Fundamental Genetics (Zoology 310), Biometry (311), Physiological Genetics (312), and Evolution (313).
