History Committee


This web site is for the KBS History Project. A history of the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station is being compiled and written, with the goal of having a printed publication in summer or fall of 2014 2015.
The KBS history team
The project is in part the work of the following persons:

  • George H. Lauff, Director of the Kellogg Biological Station from 1964 to 1991
  • Michael J. Klug, Director of the Kellogg Biological Station from 1996 to 2003
  • Barbara Baker, Assistant Director, Communications and Community Relations until December 2012, now manager of the history project
  • Bonnie Feldkamp, writer
  • Nina Consolatti, Operations Supervisor from 1992 to 2010
  • John Gorentz, Computer Services Manager (retired in October 2013) and amateur history guy

We hope members of the KBS community, past and present, can contribute to the telling of the story, too.
