Visiting at the Walter S. Sutton Symposium at the Kansas University
Medical Center are Billy Hudson, left, professor and chairman of
the KU department of biochemistry and molecular biology, and Mrs.
Betsy Sutton, the wife of Dr. Walter S. Sutton's nephew. The Friday
symposium celebrated the 100th anniversary of Dr. Sutton's
discovery that chromosomes carry the units of inheritance and
honored Hudson's 28 years of kidney research at KU. Historical
displays from Dr. Sutton's days as both a KU student and surgery
professor are in the background.
