Thomas Donnell Luckey was born in 1919 in Caspar, Wyoming. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Colorado State University in 1941 and both a Master's degree (1944) and a Ph.D. (1946) in Biochemistry and Nutrition from the University of Wisconsin. Luckey worked at the Laboratory of Bacteriology at the University of Notre Dame (LOBUND) from 1946 until 1954, when he was appointed Professor of Biochemistry in the University of Missouri's Medical School, serving as the department chairman for a number of years. He was also a research associate in the Space Sciences Research Center starting in 1965. Luckey retired from the University of Missouri in 1984 and moved to Loveland, Colorado, where he continued his research, publication, and speaking engagements. T. D. Luckey died in 2012 in Walnut Creek, California.
While T. D. Luckey's research interest ranged from germ-free and gnotobiotic animals to intestinal microecology, much of his research was directed toward hormesis (physiologic stimulation by low doses of a toxicant) and specifically radiation hormesis. As Luckey noted in 1985, "scientific and general acceptance of radiation hormesis, [has become] my goal in life." Most of the records in this Series reflect Luckey's interest in hormesis.

C:14/25/1 and C:14/25/7 above.

Note to Researcher: Ezio Anthony Moscatelli was born in New York in 1926. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry from Columbia University in New York. His Master of Science (1949) in Organic Chemistry and his Ph.D. (1958) in Biochemstry were earned at the University of Illinois. After working as a chemist for Merck and Company in New Jersey and for the National Heart Institute in Maryland, Moscatelli began his teaching career at the University of Texas Medical School in Dallas, Texas. He became an associate professor in Psychiatry and Biochemistry at the Missouri Institute of Psychiatry and the University of Missouri School of Medicine in 1970. In 1974, Moscatelli's title changed to Associate Professor of Biochemistry in the School of Medicine and the College of Agriculture at MU. He attained the rank of Professor of Biochemistry in 1992. In 1994, he was named Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry. Moscatelli died in in June 2015 in Columbia, Missouri.
