The Barbara McClintock Papers
"The Ds Locus. Part III. Transposition of the Ds Locus" (Title Page and Table of Contents)
Part of a flurry of activity by McClintock between 1948 and 1950, this follow-up to the long "memo" to Rhoades in early 1949 brings McClintock's complete vision of transposition into clearer focus.
NOTE: Page ranges in title are totally artificial and are based simply on the order of the pages of the notebook.
