The Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) history project seeks to document the wonderfully rich history of the MBL. Historians from across America are poring over the archive to bring us more information on the significant contributions that the people of the MBL have made to scientific discovery through the years, and you'll soon be able to learn about these findings in our featured exhibits. If you have your own tales to tell of life at the MBL then participate in our community archives project, or if you'd like to make your own discoveries then access the archives and see that we have already begun capturing life at the MBL with documents and photographs from as early as 1895.
Community Archives Project
The MBL Community Archives is a community-generated collection of photographs, video reminiscences, and science memorabilia. During MBL’s 125th anniversary summer of 2013, the MBL Community Archives Project scanned and processed into our community-generated archives photographs, memories, stories, letters, research documents, and course notebooks. These items were given to the Project for scanning by a broad cross section of the MBL scientific community.
