Hatfield Marine Science Center Photographs, 1965-1997

Scope and Content Note

The Hatfield Marine Science Center Photographs document the Center's facilities and surroundings in Newport, Oregon. The photographs include aerials views of the Center buildings and docks, the Newport Jetty, Yaquina Bay, and the Newport coastline and waterfront. About half of the collection consists of color slides taken in 1997 of the exteriors of the Center buildings.

Photographs of Oregon State University's research vessels, the Paiute, Cayuse, and Yaquina are included as well as the Totem buoy. One photographic print depicts the Oceanography Building (now Burt Hall) on the Corvallis campus. A 1975 photograph by Lee Kuhn shows Spencer Smith, Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildife Service; R.E. Dimick, Head of the OSU Department of Fisheries and Wildife from 1935 to 1963; and Richard Tubb, the newly appointed department head for Fisheries and Wildlife at OSU.

The collection includes a variety of formats: color slides; b/w and color prints; and negatives and prints of 9x9 inch color and b/w aerial photographs. Identified photographers include the OSU News Bureau, Lee Kuhn, and William Q. Wick.
