As it enters its second century, the MBL not only looks back to a great past, but forward to a great future as the United States' premier biological research institute. It is therefore fitting that its unique story be told at this time. In this well-researched, sometimes humorous, always human "biography" of this eclectic institution, historian of science Jane Maienschein has caught a glimpse of what it is that has made the MBL so special to all who have spent any time there. Essayist Lewis Thomas has described the MBL as a "National Biological Laboratory," an institution that brings together each summer a collection of biologists from across the United States and abroad.

After the recent inaugural history course in connection with the MBL's centennial, several of the students cancelled their vacation plans in order to stay and do research in this surprisingly outstanding library. Occasional artists arrive, and journalists, and sociologists, to carry out their own brand of research, not in biology but about biology and biologists. Yet Biology remains the central mission. As a Laboratory, the place also has evolved to embrace a wider range of work centered on biological research.
