Chemist Jean Whelan

Jean Whelan, Oceanographer Emeritis in the Marine Chemistry & Geochemistry department, remembers building this analytical equipment  as a technician in chemist John Hunt's lab, about 1980. "A new technique had been developed in France to analyze petroleum in certain rocks," she said. "John Hunt told me that we had to have one of these, so I built it. And John Farrington [standing] had stopped by to see our new toy, having been my first mentor at WHOI... Also, we were probably using some equipment borrowed from his lab!"
