About the Maynard and Suzanne Goldman Endowed Lecture
Suzanne and Maynard Goldman first came to Woods Hole when Maynard was named to the Council of Visitors in 1998. He served in this capacity and on the MBL’s finance committee until 2003. During this time the Goldmans developed a strong affection for the MBL’s professional staff and the exciting work being done here. Maynard and Suzanne have both had a particular interest in ongoing research and developments in the environmental sciences. Maynard has worked with a number of non-profits in this area, served as chairman of the Massachusetts Environmental Trust for more than 15 years, and has been a member of the advisory board of the National Whale Conservation Fund. The Goldmans live in Boston and Grantham, NH. They are pleased to be able to sponsor this lectureship to help continue the tradition of excellence at the MBL.
