Description
The records of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography's Communications Office include the public relations materials collected, created, and distributed by that office. The records document the history, research, and other activities of Scripps Institution of Oceanography and its affiliated aquarium.
Background
Independently founded in 1903, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography was originally named the Marine Biological Association of San Diego. In 1912, it became part of the University of California and was renamed the Scripps Institution for Biological Research. In 1925, the name was changed to Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO), to reflect the institution's major emphasis on oceanographic research, though the institution's scope of study includes many scientific fields. Scripps became a department of UC San Diego in 1960, when the San Diego campus was established.
