Between 1913 and 1930, the General Biological Supply House in Chicago also grew remarkably. Morris Miller Wells started what he originally called the “Chicago Biological Supply House” in 1913, while he was a graduate student at the University of Chicago. He began working out of a basement office there, and the business continued to expand under his leadership. Wells completed his PhD at Chicago in 1915, and began teaching there as an Associate Professor. In 1918, with the help of Frank Lillie and his brother-in-law, Charles Crane, Wells resigned from his work at the University of Chicago, and incorporated his thriving business under the new name “General Biological Supply House”—selling products under the trade name Turtox. Frank Lillie was then the Director of the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole (starting in 1908). Lillie married Frances Williams Crane (whom he met at the MBL in 1895), and her brother Charles R. Crane became an early and often financial backer of the MBL. When the GBSH incorporated, Charles Crane bought a controlling interest (fifty-one percent) of the General Biological Supply House common stock, worth $18,000 at the time of purchase, and gifted that common stock to the MBL. During these early years, the General Biological Supply House continued to outgrow its operating space in Chicago, and nearly every five years expanded into new and larger facilities to accommodate its growth.
