Biographical Sketch of William Bateson

William Bateson (1861-1926) was a biologist and evolutionary theorist who was best known in his time for rediscovering and defending the genetic paradigm of Gregor Mendel, with whom he collaborated on some projects. William Bateson also coined the term "genetics" in a letter to a colleague and friend, Adam Sedgwick, on April 18, 1905. If you peruse these archives, you also will find evidence of his systems thinking and pattern thinking around the turn of the century.
