Biographical Note

Hermann Joseph Muller (or H. J. Muller) (1890 – 1967) was an American geneticist, educator, and Nobel laureate best known for his work on the physiological and genetic effects of radiation and for his outspoken political beliefs. He taught at the University of Texas at Austin from 1920 to 1932. Muller's discovery of X-ray mutagenesis earned him fame after he delivered a paper entitled "The Problem of Genetic Modification" at the Fifth International Congress of Genetics in Berlin. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1946. He was one of many scientists to sign the 1958 petition to the United Nations calling for an end to nuclear weapons testing.
