The completed work was entitled The Mutants of Drosophilia Melanogaster, originally published in 1944 as Carnegie Institution of Washington Publication 552 and reprinted in 1950. Both editions are considered classics in their field.

Included in these two volumes are many photographs of lab personnel and visitors, the buildings and grounds, and both research-related and recreational events. Several symposium programs and clippings are also included. Dr. Brehme Warren's detailed notations and identifications are reproduced in the index.
