Biographical / Historical

The Chesapeake Research Consortium, Inc. (CRC) is a not-for-profit corporation chartered by the State of Maryland. It is an association of six institutions, each with a long-standing involvement in research on problems affecting the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed. It was founded by an agreement started in 1966 by Johns Hopkins University, the Smithsonian Institute, and the University of Maryland to collaborate in biological research and education at the Center for Environmental Studies. In 1971 the first three were joined by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science to form the Chesapeake Research Consortium in order to "foster and facilitate research germane to the region of the Chesapeake Bay." Environmental studies is the main focus of research for the consortium.
