1913–1916

Cottages are built at Scripps to serve as "temporary" residences for faculty, staff, and visitors.  Miss Ellen signs contracts valued at more than $30,000 for construction of other campus facilities, including the first Scripps pier. The first dedicated public aquarium is built, and a library and museum are constructed.  In the midst of this building boom, Miss Ellen announces an additional gift to the Institution of $100,000.
