Scope and Content of Collection

The Scripps Institution of Oceanography Business Manager was responsible for the oversight of all funding, the development of the campus grounds, and served as the Institution's liaison with academic, state, government, and private supporting entities. The Office of the Director business records document the early SIO fiscal history from 1903-1947. The bulk of the material is comprised of the records of Wesley Clarence Crandall, the first SIO Business Manager, from 1913 until his position was abolished by incoming second director T. Wayland Vaughan in 1924.
Arranged in four series: 1) ADMINISTRATIVE FILES, 2) CAMPUS IMPROVEMENTS, 3) ACCOUNT BOOKS, and 4) SCRIPPS FAMILY BUSINESS MANAGER.

Administrative History

In 1903, UC Berkeley biologist William E. Ritter and San Diego physician Fred Baker, with the financial support of philanthropists E. W. Scripps and Ellen Browning Scripps, founded the Marine Biological Association of San Diego. Established as a seaside research laboratory for the University of California's Department of Zoology, the purpose of the Association was to advance the study of marine sciences. Ritter was appointed as its first Director and supervised the activities of temporary research stations in San Diego Bay. He was responsible for directing all of the institution's scientific and administrative work, and for obtaining the material, personnel, and financial support that made research possible.
In 1905, the Association leased property above La Jolla Cove and established a marine laboratory. Ms. Scripps added a codicil to her will in 1909 bequeathing a gift to the Regents of the University of California for a permanent marine biological station, and construction of the first building on the current campus, the George H. Scripps Memorial Marine Biological Laboratory, was completed in 1910. In July of 1912, the Association deeded its property to the Regents and became the Scripps Institution for Biological Research, formally becoming part of the UC System.
It was around this time that Ritter created the position of Business Manager in order to disperse some of the administrative work of the Institution. In 1913, William Clarence Crandall was named the first Business Manager. His major duties were to oversee all funding and to supervise the development of the campus grounds. This included the building of the cottages, the director's house, the original pier, and the library building. Crandall was also the Institution's liaison to University of California administrative offices, government agencies, Ellen Browning Scripps, and E. W. Scripps. In 1919, Tillie Genter joined the staff to assist Crandall, working as secretary and librarian.
Ritter retired in June 1923, and he was succeeded in the directorship of the Institution by T. Wayland Vaughn, who was appointed second director in February 1924. Vaughan abolished the Office of the Business Manager, and assumed responsibility for the Institution's scientific and administrative work. He continued to be assisted by Genter, who became responsible for much of the administrative work at the Institution, and by Ruth Raglan, who worked as a librarian. In 1925, Scripps Institution for Biological Research was renamed the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Vaughan replaced the local board of directors with an administrative committee of department heads, who began to take on administrative duties in addition to their research. W. E. Allen managed microscopes and supplies; G. F. McEwen oversaw oceanographic instruments; P. S. Barnhart directed collections and museums; E. G. Moberg supervised ship operations. It would not be until 1951, under Director Roger Revelle, that the position of Business Manager would be officially reinstated within the Office of the Director.
Today, the Vice Chancellor, Marine Sciences (VCMS) Business Office is responsible for managing the financial resources available to the VCMS, and serving as the administrators for financial resources for all SIO units and divisions, and for analyzing and reporting on SIO's finances and personnel operations.

ACCOUNT BOOKS

Scope and Contents

Series 3) ACCOUNT BOOKS: 32 volumes, arranged chronologically. The account books document the routine financial matters of the Marine Biological Association of San Diego, the Scripps Institution of Biological Research, and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography from 1903 to 1947. The entries document the growth and development of SIO and include numerous schedules; all of the schedules included in each volume are listed in the finding aid. These schedules record income and expenses, gifts and endowments, budget summaries, scientific research, construction and maintenance of facilities, and salary reports.
Gifts
The account books document the endowment funds and other gifts that were made to the Institution by prominent individuals from 1903 to 1947. Ellen B. Scripps provided most of the financial support for SIO during its early years and established an income-producing endowment in 1903. The Endowment Account ledger in Volume 1 describes these early funds granted to the Station. Over time, she established other endowment funds to meet specific needs of the Institution, several of which are documented in Volume 5.
While E. W. Scripps never established an income-producing endowment as his sister did, he established special gift accounts and made yearly donations to the Institution for more than twenty years. These donations were in variable amounts and resulted from his conversations with Dr. Ritter about the Institution's specific needs, including salaries, field work, and library collection development. Volume 4 includes several examples of these gifts.
Donations made by SIO professors Roger Revelle and Johanson in 1939 and 1940 were designated as salary funds for two assistants, Karl Herrescoff and Karl Huesner, who were conducting an analysis of bottom sediments (see Volumes 25 and 26). A donation from Frederick H. Stoye supported Dr. Carl Leavitt Hubbs' work in fish biology during the years 1946-1947 (see Volume 28).
Significant gifts from local and state organizations are also present in the account books. For example, a fund was raised in 1903 by the Chamber of Commerce Biological Committee of San Diego to support a preliminary survey for a permanent site for the Biological Station. In 1906, La Jollans donated an endowment to Dr. Fred Baker to be added to the existing Building Account (see Volume 2). In 1931, the State Legislature appropriated $40,000, recorded in the Campus Improvement Fund ledger in Volume 15, which was designated for campus improvement. The funds were used to build Ritter Hall, to renovate existing older buildings, and to improve the grounds of the Institution during 1931 and 1932.
Buildings and Property
The account books also include material documenting the expenses and maintenance of Scripps property, buildings, and grounds. The first little green laboratory at the cove in La Jolla was a wooden structure built in 1905-1906. The Buildings ledger in Volume 1 documents its construction, financed by the La Jolla Improvement Society, a group of local citizens. The Real Estate ledger details the 1907 purchase of Pueblo Lot 1298, La Jolla from the city as a Station site. The New Buildings and Grounds ledger documents the construction of the first permanent building for the Station, as well as the planting of thousands of eucalyptus seeds, overseen by Mrs. Ritter, to enhance the beauty and value of the land.
Housing for permanent and summer staff and their families began to be built in 1913 with the erection of the first twelve one-story frame cottages built near the Marine Biological Station. Over time, more cottages were built, and they were rented at monthly rates to faculty and visitors. Reports of the cottages' income and expenses are reported throughout Volumes 3-26.
Scientific Research
Many schedules throughout the account books document research conducted at Scripps. Each of the volumes contain ledgers that document laboratory, supply, and boat expenditure information between 1913 and 1947. Many also include special funds for specific projects and salaries.
Scripps conducted its first large scale research projects in cooperation with the state and federal governments during World War I. In 1925, Scripps hosted a conference on the physical oceanography, marine meteorology, and climate, which led to increased participation in the collection of oceanographic data by the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Bureau of Lighthouses, and the Los Angeles Steamship Company. By 1928, a dozen regional power companies were sufficiently interested in meteorological research to contribute funds to Scripps. A similar surge of research projects occurred during the 1930s. Recapitulation Accounts were established to summarize the various maintenance accounts. After 1918, the maintenance accounts were called Scientific Accounts, and they include services and disbursements for the purpose of scientific studies. In the 1940s, research projects with the U.S. Navy were conducted in sub-surface warfare as part of the University of California Division of War Research (UCDWR).
The account books document a number of other scientific projects conducted at Scripps. A special fund was established in 1939 to support research on weather forecasting. In 1942, sea and swell forecasting, a new field of science, was created at Scripps. In 1944, special courses in sea and swell forecasting were given at the Institution.
A limited amount of research not directly related to national defense was conducted at the Scripps during World War II. Dr. Claude E. ZoBell's work on petroleum-producing bacteria was greatly expanded after 1940 with grants from the American Petroleum Institute. Kelco, Inc. of San Diego provided a fellowship to support the J. Frederick Wohnus' kelp studies from 1941 to 1944. In 1944, Scripps conducted joint research with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution into the effects of shallow water bottom topography on waves. Ledgers throughout Volumes 25 through 29 document the expenses of all of these research projects.
The scientific research conducted by the Institution is documented throughout all 32 volumes, and notes in the finding aid list the names of every ledger found in the volumes. Researchers may browse the finding aid or perform keyword searches by funding agency (for example: U.S. Navy, Geological Society of America, or American Petroleum Institute), scientific research area (for example: meteorological, oceanography, weather, or shore), or simply by the words "scientific" or "research."
