Schultz, Jack, 1904?-1971

Jack Schultz was geneticist and biochemist. His career centered on the study of the nature and function of the gene, chemical genetics of Drosophila, cytochemical and nutritional techniques, cytochemistry of growth, and the pattern of human chromosomes. Schultz obtained his A.B., A.M., and Ph.D. (1929) from Columbia University, where he was the last graduate student to get his doctorate under T. H. Morgan. He also worked with Morgan at the California Institute of Technology, 1929-1936 and 1941-1942. As a Rockefeller Foundation fellow in 1937-1939, he worked under Torbjo╠łrn Caspersson at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden. The remainder of his career was spent at the Institute for Cancer Research, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he was Senior member and head of the Department of Genetics and Cytochemistry, 1943-1957, and Chairman of the Division of Biology, 1957-1969. Much of his tenure at the Institute was spent as an administrator, rather than on original research. He had much success in choosing, encouraging, and stimulating a brilliant research staff. He did not publish prolifically, relying more on lectures and informal discussions.
