WILLIAM J. DREYER (1928-2004); Caltech Professor of Biology 1963-2004. His early work at Caltech centered on investigations of genetic coding for protein structure using immunological techniques.

With Leroy Hood and later Michael Hunkapillar he worked on the design of an automated protein sequencer and was associated with the founding of the company Applied Biosystems.
