The Marine Mammal Center: How It All BeganThe Marine Mammal Center:
How It All Began

Lloyd Smalley, Paul Maxwell and Patricia Arrigoni were the three founders of The Marine Mammal Center in 1973, 1974 and 1975. Some thirty-five years later, in 2009, when the Center dedicated a new thirty-three million dollar facility, all three founders were asked to speak to the large group who had come to celebrate the opening. In preparation for this, Arrigoni started searching through old archival papers and decided to put together a scrapbook. This project morphed into a book of three hundred pages, plus one hundred and eighty images including photographs and documents, and a complete index.
