Background
Edward Brinton (1924-2010) was a research biologist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO), UC San Diego, who specialized in the study of euphausiids, or krill. He graduated from Haverford College in 1949, and after obtaining his master's degree from Bryn Mawr, joined SIO as a graduate student in 1950. He completed his doctoral dissertation on the distribution of Pacific euphausiids in 1958. Brinton remained at SIO for the duration of his scientific career as a research biologist in the Marine Life Research Group of the California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (CalCOFI), an environmental program focused on marine ecosystems off the coast of California.
