The Laboratory collection features both historical and current images of the James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory facilities, as well as its staff at work, Laboratory Open Houses, and images of the Laboratory's first director, Dr. Lionel A. Walford.
Patricia Irby, the Laboratory’s Administrative Officer, gives Laboratory 2010 Open House visitors information from the Cooperative Shark Tagging Program table. Held in conjunction with the Sandy Hook Ocean Fun Day, an annual event jointly sponsored by the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium and New Jersey Natural Gas, over 1,200 visitors toured the Laboratory, viewed exhibits, and got their hands dirty in the touch-tanks and other hands-on activities. The Cooperative Shark Tagging Program, which is operated from the Center’s Narragansett Laboratory, originated at the Sandy Hook Laboratory in the 1960’s. Their exhibit featured a large shark jaw that provided some fun photograph opportunities for visitors!
