Robert Paine Scripps Forum for Science, Society and the Environment


The son of Scripps Oceanography founder E.W. Scripps and nephew of patroness Ellen Browning Scripps, Robert Paine Scripps (1895-1938) was born and spent his life in the San Diego area. As a youth, he frequently visited the Scripps campus and sailed on its research vessels. Scripps Oceanography survived the depression thanks to Robert Paine Scripps. Not only did he more than double his family's support during this period, but Robert Paine Scripps also made these gifts strategically, arranging for the state of California to match the family's contributions.

Since 1903, Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego has built a legacy of exploration and discovery, leading efforts to fully investigate the oceans, solid earth, and atmosphere. Scripps scientists have sailed to tropical     islands and ventured under polar ice, observing environments and their inhabitants, collecting specimens and samples, and recording voluminous data for laboratory analysis. Today, Scripps is an international leader in seeking scientific understanding of the globe.
