Revelle family endows UC San Diego chair honoring Roger Revelle

The University of California, San Diego, has established the Roger Revelle Chair in Environmental Science at Scripps Institution of Oceanography to honor Roger Revelle, one of the worlds most highly regarded oceanographers, who also is considered to be the father of UC San Diego. A $2.5 million gift from Revelles wife, Ellen, and family represents the largest single donation ever made for an endowed chair in the 104-year history of Scripps Oceanography. Funds for the endowed chair will be used to recruit an outstanding climate scientist for Scripps, one of the worlds foremost climate change research institutions.

Roger Revelle (1909-1991) was one of the nation's most prominent oceanographers and a world leader in the application of science and technology to help solve problems in developing countries. Revelle, one of the true pioneers of climate change research, is often described as the "grandfather of the greenhouse effect."

Long associated with the University of California, Revelle was director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography from 1951 to 1964. His vision and energies led to the establishment of the UC San Diego campus in 1960, where he was a professor of science and public policy. In 1965, the first of UC San Diegos six colleges was named Revelle College in his honor.

For more than five decades, Revelle's counsel and guidance was sought by national and international agencies in areas ranging from the environment and education to agriculture and world population. He was described by New York Times science writer Walter Sullivan as one of the two or three most articulate spokesmen for science in the Western World.

Roger Revelle was a bold and legendary scientist of the first order as well as a visionary academic leader who built a powerful institutionUC San Diegofrom the ground up. A good measure of UCSDs success can be traced back to the strong foundation laid by Roger Revelle, said UCSD Chancellor Marye Anne F
