William L. Russell, 1976


For his outstanding contributions during a long and distinguished career to the quantitative evaluation of the genetic effects of radiation in mammals which serve as a major scientific base for national and international standards for radiation protection of human populations; for his major contributions to the principles of genetic theory; and most recently, for his vigorous efforts to evaluate in animals the mutagenic potential of chemical pollutants arising from non-nuclear energy sources.
