Home / Catalogue / Sewall Wright Taught Me



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).

Ask your library to order the whole series. Note to scholars: some of the handwriting can be hard to read; magnification is possible using the e-book edition.


Robert E. Sloan was a master’s student with an interest in paleontology and evolution when he wrote these notes while attending three of Wright’s core courses during 1951-1952. For more on Robert E. Sloan, see his oral history (link).
