In 1952, he joined the School of Agriculture at the University of Cambridge and began working on nematodes, study- ing seasonal emergence and the effects of soil structure, particularly aeration, on hatching in Heterodera schachtii . Whilst at Cambridge, Harry Wallace had extensive discus- sions with Sir James Gray, Professor of Zoology, which led to his work on locomotion in nematodes, commenc- ing soon after he moved to Rothamsted Experimental Sta- tion (now Rothamsted Research) in 1955.
