Fisheries biologist Bill Schroeder with chimaera

Scientist Of Many Hats

In the 1950s William C. Schroeder was photographed displaying a deep-sea fish called a chimaera that he had collected. Schroeder—a fisheries biologist who held positions at WHOI and Harvard and was WHOI's Business Manager through its first two decades—co-authored two landmark books with WHOI's first Director, Henry Bryant Bigelow. Fishes of the Gulf of Maine and Fishes of the Western North Atlantic: Sawfishes, Guitarfishes, Skates, and Rays are still-used reference works.
