A gift from the
Mary Rose Peck Trust

Joseph H. Peck came to the UCMP after World War II and his interest in the evolution of ammonites, along with his talents as a preparator, contributed significantly to the museum’s curatorial and research programs in invertebrate paleontology. Joe’s work at UCMP began in attic rooms in the Hearst Mining Building and then he facilitated the museum move to what is now McCone Hall in the 1960s. He was Principal Museum Scientist at the time of his retirement in December 1979 and passed away in 1982. His widow, Mary Rose Peck, died last spring. We recently received news that she left UCMP a gift of $10,000 in Joe’s honor. All of us are deeply grateful for this gift, which will be invested to enrich our programs and to honor and remember Joe’s many contributions to UCMP.
