About the Author
Frederick Bruce Hutt's career in scientific writing began at age 8, when he sent a letter correcting a newspaper account about the first butterflies of spring, since he had observed the butterflies several days earlier than reported. A mentor launched him into poultry breeding by giving him a setting hen and clutch of eggs at age 11.
His precocity continued into old age. At 35, he became the youngest president of the Poultry Science Association. He researched, taught, and wrote extensively. He published more than 250 papers and articles, some intended for audiences of farmers and poultry hobbyists and others intended for researchers and geneticists. His clear, well-organized style won him a warm welcome with all audiences.
Hutt did ground-breaking research in breeding for disease resistance (including Marek's disease and salmonella pullorum), spearheaded the use of "progeny testing" as the most reliable breeding method, and created the first chromosome map of the chicken. He was a professor at Cornell University and served on the editorial board of the Journal of Heredity for 25 years.
His books include Genetics of the Fowl, Animal Genetics, and Genetic Resistance to Disease in Domestic Animals.
