This talk considers Fisher’s work on the genetics of human blood groups, and specifically how his serological laboratory was co-opted during the Second World War to provide practical support for the new Emergency Blood Transfusion Service. I will describe how Fisher and his colleagues in the unit carried out human genetics research using the blood and bureaucracies of wartime public health.
