Who was Norman Simmons?
Simmons worked with Dr. Elkan Blout on proteins and polypeptides and was also recognized for isolating a structurally pure form of DNA. This was, in fact, the DNA which Rosalind Franklin used in her X-ray diffraction studies that rewarded Maurice Wilkins, James Watson and Francis Crick with the Nobel Prize for the double helix model of DNA. Wilkins stated at that time' "I wish to thank Norman Simmons for having refined techniques of isolating DNA, and thereby helping a great many workers including ourselves."
