Captain John Veeder in the Wheelhouse. Veeder first came to the MBL in 1890 when the Laboratory acquired the Sagitta, a steam launch that added greatly to the small fleet of the two old dories that the Annisquam Laboratory bequeathed the MBL. The Supply Department began with the advent of power, making it possible to take students out on field trips, picnics, or other outings. Having grown up at Cuttyhunk Island, Veeder knew the waters of Vineyard Sound and Buzzards Bay, and would never take unnecessary chances with the students. It was said he could "box the compass" faster than anyone else in Woods Hole. He retired in 1933 after 42 years at the Laboratory
