Morgan was born in 1866 in Lexington, Kentucky, nephew of the flamboyant General John Hunt Morgan who was nicknamed "The Thunderbolt of the Confederacy" for his swashbuckling exploits during the Civil War.
Morgan often jokingly said that he did three kinds of experiments: those that were foolish, those that were damn foolish, and those that were worse than that.
As testament to his humility, Morgan reversed his position on Mendelian principles, and in 1915 with his students A. Sturtevant, H. Muller, and C. Bridges, produced the fundamental genetics textbook The Mechanism of Mendelian Heredity, reconciling all of genetics to the physical array of genes on chromosomes and to the behavior of chromosomes.

Wilson convinced Morgan that the key to understanding development—how one cell, the egg, gives rise to the animal—is to understand heredity, since it provides the means by which the egg and the sperm carry the properties of individuals from one generation to another.
Morgan deduced that a male must inherit the X chromosome from his mother and Y from his father, and he immediately spotted a correlation between these sex-linked chromosomes and the segregation of the factors determining eye color.
