Life Magazine Features Work Of Williams in Metamorphosis
Featured article in this week's Life magazine is an eight-page color spread on the metamorphosis research of Carroll M. Williams, associate professor of Zoology. It was work in this line that earned Williams the American Association for the Advancement of Science nomination for "outstanding young scientist of 1950."
The University biologist began his study of metamorphosis ten years ago and concentrated his experiments on the change of form of a moth species.
The Life story included a step-by-step account of Williams' discovery of the two hormone-producing centers which collaborate to trigger the phenomenon of metamorphosis. Williams found the interdependent centers in the brain and the thorax of the moth.
