Nettie Maria Stevens (1861-1912)

Modern cytological work involves an intricacy of detail, the significance of which can be appreciated by the specialist alone; but Miss Stevens had a share in a discovery of importance, and her work will be remembered for this, when the minutiae of detailed investigations that she carried out have become incorporated in the general body of the subject. - Tribute by Geneticist Thomas Hunt Morgan (1866-1945), following Nettie Stevens' death in 1912
