Ernest Everett Just was not like other scientists of his time. He saw the whole, where others saw only parts. He noticed details others failed to see. He persisted in his research despite the discrimination and limitations imposed upon him as an African American. His keen observations of sea creatures revealed new insights about egg cells and the origins of life.
