"Harland Goff Wood"

(1907 - 1991)
In 1931 Wood was accepted as a graduate student in bacteriology at Iowa State University at Ames by C. H. Werkman, who was starting to investigate the chemistry of bacterial fermentations. It was there that Harland made his stunning discovery of CO2 fixation, which up to that time was known to occur only in chemosynthetic and photosynthetic autotrophs. This idea was so controversial that for some time Professor Werkman doubted the validity of Harland's findings.
