The contributions of Lindon Eaves to the development of the subject of behavior genetics are reviewed, with a focus on the 1970s, the first astonishing decade of his career when he made major theoretical advances in the design and power of human quantitative genetic studies, including treatment of assortative mating, cultural transmission, sex limitation, sibling effects, gene-environment interaction and covariation, and multivariate genetic analysis. He also made important substantive contributions to our understanding of the causes of individual differences in cognition, personality, social and sexual attitudes, and smoking.
