About the Community Archives Project

The MBL Community Archives Project is a collaboration between the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) in Woods Hole, MA, Arizona State University, the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and Dartmouth College.

  • Co-Directors: Michael Dietrich, Dartmouth College; Laura Lovett, University of Massachusetts, Amherst; Matt Person, MBLWHOI Library
  • Project Manager: Kate MacCord, Arizona State University
  • Historians: Hannah Barg, Grace Foster: Mt. Holyoke College; Florian Huber, Lijing Jiang, Erick Peirson: Arizona State University

The goal of the project is to compile a community-generated collection of photographs, video reminiscences, and science memorabilia of the MBL. Contributed items and stories will become a part of this History of the Marine Biological Laboratory website. Online exhibits from these contributions and other archival materials will be created and curated by science historians and archivists.
