Marine microbiologist Claude E. ZoBell's biographical materials, correspondence, professional files, writings and photographs.
Background
Claude Ephraim ZoBell (1904-1989) was a forerunner in the field of marine microbiology who pioneered research on microorganisms and microbial processes in the ocean. After graduating from the Southern Idaho College of Education in 1922, he taught and was a principal at an elementary school in Rigby, Idaho. He resigned from teaching in 1926, attaining his M.S. in bacteriology from Utah State University in 1929, and his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 1931. In 1932, ZoBell joined the Scripps Institution of Oceanography as a temporary instructor of marine microbiology. He soon became an assistant professor, and in 1948, a full professor. In 1972 he became professor emeritus at UC San Diego.
