Description EXPLORING HUMAN HEREDITY 23 in a draught. By the time the lecture was over, myotonia had set in and she was unable to move until two other students held her up and walked her about for a short time. The late Dr. Ezra Rich of Ogden studied this trait in a family in Utah and reported his findings in an eastern medical journal in 1894. This was six years before the rediscovery of Mendel's paper. Rich described the inheritance but of course did not attempt to explain it. More than fifty years after he wrote his paper we observed the same trait in the same kindred and thereby discovered his early work. The trait is quite rare, only a few cases in the world having been reported. Figure 9 shows a family pedigree of this trait and is an excellent example of a simple Mendelian dominant.
