Description: Known as one of the most important centers for oceanographic research in the world, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography was founded in 1903 as the Marine Biological Association of San Diego. The Institution became part of the University of California in 1912, and this digital collection from the University of California-San Diego offers a wide range of primary and secondary materials that relate the history of this important research institution. On the site, visitors will find documents that detail the history of Scripps, such as the 1966 paper "SIO: First Fifty Years" by Helen Raitt and Beatrice Moulton, along with hundreds of photographs in the Still Image Collection area. Moving on down, the "Panoramas" area contains Quick Time movies of the Scripps campus in 1916 and 1927, along with movie clips of a sea spider and a fangtooth deep-sea fish. Visitors shouldn't miss the audio and video clips, as they can listen to a number of renowned scientists talk about their work at Scripps from the 1950s to the 1990s.
