Poem by student of Hermann J. Muller with accompanying drawing by Elof Carlson made for Muller's 65th Birthday Celebration


Description
Haldane's Organic Soup, "Hid within a Primeval Tureen / (Though denied by the knave Oparin) / There arose DNA / Or a unit, let's say, / That Muller maintains was THE GENE. / Thus 'twas out of a chemical ooze / Nature fashioned this unit to use. / Was this gene, so unseen, DNA or protein? / That depends on the teacher you choose."
