Hide Profile

Brooks was professor of biology at Hopkins and the founder of the Chesapeake Zoological Laboratory.

He was born in Cleveland in 1848 and received his B.A. from Williams in 1870 and received his Ph. D from Harvard in 1875. In 1876 he was received one of the first advanced fellowships at Hopkins. He remained on the faculty until his death in 1908. Brook's morphological studies of tunicates and coelenterates were his outstanding contribution to biology. He published numerous articles on the morphology of these invertebrates, and his research drawing form the bulk of the collection.
