Excerpt from The Brown Alumni Monthly, Vol. 10: June, 1909 to May, 1910
Agassiz had been engaged for a long time upon his Contributions. He had brought the great work nearly to a finish. It was, indeed, finished but for one small yet very important bit of observation: he had carried the turtle egg through every stage of its development with the single exception of one - the very earliest - that stage of first cleavages, when the cell be gins to segment, immediately upon its be ing laid. That beginning stage had brought the Contributions to a halt. To get eggs that were fresh enough to show the incubation at this period had been im possible.
It was many years later that Mr. Jenks, then a gray-haired college proies sor, told me how he got those eggs to Agassiz.
