Peter Loesh was a plant breeder at Iowa State University from 1971 to 1980. During this time, he worked extensively with the o2 mutation in an effort to improve the nutritional quality of maize. Unfortunately, he passed away suddenly, and this work was not brought to a conclusion. Some of his effort was devoted to developing o2 back-cross conversions of public domain inbred lines. Because Dr. Loesh’s field books have been lost, the extent of recovery of the recurrent parent phenotype is not known.
