A national leader in ocean sciences

As the Institution’s fourth director, from 1958 to 1977, Paul Fye presided over a period of major change. It was a time of great national interest in basic science, including oceanography, and the resulting boost in federal support for marine science allowed considerable expansion. Fye was the driver for two important new directions for the Institution— the MIT/WHOI Joint Program began in 1968, and the marine policy program in 1971.
