50th Anniversary: 1966 to 2016

MLML began educational activities in 1966, therefore, we celebrated our 50-year anniversary in 2017. Each week for the entire year leading up to the three-day long celebration from 5 to 7 August 2016 we published a blog on various historical and hysterical events associated with the storied history of MLML. Some of the blogs recounted how the lab was formed; former faculty, staff, and administrators; and various research endeavors. Some of the blogs revisited special events or projects, often with some humor involved. These 54 blogs captured the essence of an active and highly successful marine lab at its infancy to a full-fledged powerhouse of marine science. We hope you enjoy reading about the history of MLML, these events have shaped the heart and soul of the place and continue to affect who we are and what we do. Besides, they also are a great read!

Alumnus and resident graphic artist, Lynn McMasters created four logos to commemorate MLML's 50th Anniversary.  Each logo represents 2 marine science disciplines.


MLML Friend and colleague Kirsten Carlson designed this logo to capture the Spirit of Moss Landing and to represent the global reach of our alumni and researchers.
